The swim is in Lake Winnebago along a unique and panoramic shoreline; starting and finishing at the beach. Plenty of buoys will be available to rest if needed. Large balloon arch to sight for the swim finish.
Both courses head out of the park climbing High Cliff. High Cliff is the signature of the event. The course flat with a few undulating hills. The long course heads down scenic Lake Shore Drive. The sprint course begins the same as the long course then heads east on Faro Springs and finishes on the same long course.
The run courses go through High Cliff State Park area including up the hill for a beautiful overview of the Lake Winnebago shoreline which runs mostly through trails. The long course is a triple loop and also heads down High Cliff to the finish.
