The swim will take place in the Kelly Pool in Fairmount Park. Triathletes will enter the water at one end and swim eight (8) lengths of the pool in a serpentine fashion [swim up lane 1, down lane 2, up lane 3… and finish in lane 8] There will be ample certified lifeguards on sight. If at any point an athlete feels the need to rest they can simply grab the lane line located on either side. There is NO penalty to do so… this is all about finishing!
The Run is located entirely within the Fairmount Park system. Athletes can expect to run past the Family Friendly Please Touch Museum and Horticultural Center finishing directly next to the transition area.
