Oak Mountain State Park:
200 Terrace Dr, Pelham, AL 35124
Swim Course: 400 yards
The swim course is an open water swim in Double Oak Lake in Oak Mountain State Park. The water is always very calm. The calm water and the individual race start makes for a great open water swim for anxious racers or beginners. The swim start is an individual "time trial" type start. Each participant enters the water individually, approximately every 3 - 5 seconds. Your race number defines when you enter the water, with race number 1 being first. You enter the swim based on your race number, from lowest to highest number. Race Numbers are assigned based on your estimated swim time that you turned in on your entry form. Your racking position in transition is also organized by your race number.
There will be no moving up in swim order on race day. Pre-register by the Wednesday night before the race to get a spot in the swim order!!!! All registrants after that time will have the UPPER numbers and be starting at the rear, sorry, no exceptions.
