Long distances:

One loop around the lake is exactly 1 km. So for the 5 km it will be 5 loops and 10 loops for the 10 km.

Along the one side of the lake there are 4 rafts. They can be used by coaches or assistants to supply water and nutrition to swimmers if they wish to use this method.

We will also have a small chute at the beach just beside the start and finish with tables: about 8 meters where swimmers can leave their own water and food. On each loop swimmers will have to get out of the water and run around those 8 to 10 meters to check with officials. As they get out of the water they can be self sufficient to hydrate and get food themselves and jump in the water immediately.

Short distances:

There will be visible buoys marking a 200m diamond off the beach on the south side of the lake.

The 200 will be one loop around, the 400 is 2 loops and the 800 will be 4 loops or one for each relay member.

The 1500 will be a different course set up on its own.
