The Little Uno is a 1 mile swimming event and will consist of a rectangular 1 mile loop course. The Big Deuce is a 2 mile swimming event and will consist of two laps of the same course. The 2 mile swim will start 10 minutes before the 1 mile swim (approximately 8:00AM for the 2 mile start).
The 2016 course will start at New Hope Overlook on the south side of Jordan Lake. There will be a 2 hour cutoff for the 2 mile swim. If you are still in the water at that point we will pull you due to time and safety concerns. No exceptions.
The course will be supported by lifeguards, watercraft and rescue personnel.

Why open water?
We are big fans of open water racing and training, and while North Carolina has plenty of triathlons, we don't a lot of organized open water races. We're changing that!
