Swim Cancelled: Mandatory Duathlon
Due to unfavorable swim conditions, today’s swim has been cancelled.
All Sprint and International participants will compete in the Duathlon (run-bike-run) option, beginning from the Swim Start area on the lakefront path adjacent to Lake Shore Drive and Balbo Ave.
Athletes should report to the same Swim Start area to queue in their original wave assignment groupings. The International distance participants will begin at 6:15 AM. Sprint distance participants will begin at 8:20 AM.
Waves of runners will be released in time trial format from the original Swim Start area, proceeding north to cover the 0.75 miles and into Transition. Athletes will then complete their respective Sprint and International distance Bike and Run Courses.
There is no need to bring swim equipment to the lakefront. Athletes should plan to wear running shoes (the swim carpet has been removed) to complete the first run portion and wear their timing chips for the duration of the event.
