Please note, there are some race time and race order changes this year. The swims will be conducted as follows: 800m, 2000m, and 4000m. The 4 mile paddle board race will begin 5 minutes before the 2000m swim, and the 8 mile race will begin 5 minutes before the start of the 4000 m swim. This will allow enough time for everyone to enjoy the BBQ and post race festivities.
