The Top 10-15 spots will be seeded by the Race Director based on information from other races and previous HOD triathlons; all others will start based on the order of registration. We do this to ensure the more experienced racers are at the front to start the race.
The Swim will START very close to the entrance of the LTOK restaurant. It will horseshoe around the Lake like it has in the past and swimmers will exit the water on the opposite side of the restaurant near the boat ramp. Please keep the buoys on your RIGHT side during the entire swim.
The swim is 1/2 mile.
Swim caps are not required but recommended for safety; however, swim caps will not be provided by The Philadelphia Sertoma Club. If provided, they are required to be worn by USAT. We are always trying to make this a better race, and this is one way to make it safer but also allow participants to race in the way they are most comfortable.
