Some of the fun of last year:
The courses are clearly marked: there is a 400m. loop, a 1 Km, 1500, and 2Km Courses all connected.
The 5Km is two loops to the 2Km course + one loop of the 1KM.
The 4Km is two loops to the 2Km course.
The 3Km is one loop to the 2Km course + one loop of the 1KM.
The 1500m is one loop on its own course.
The 1Km is one loop on its own course.
Participants are allowed to have a support kayak or paddle board along the course as long as they do not interfere with the progress of any other swimmer. They can be used by coaches or assistants to supply water and nutrition to swimmers if they wish to use this method.
There is also have a small raft close to the start at the beach where swimmers can leave their own water and food.
There is be visible buoys marking a 200m diamond off the beach on the north side of the quarry.
The 200 will be one loop around, the 400 is 2 loops and the 800 will be 4 loops.
Lets all have a great experience in the open water
The C3 Quarry is owned by James Dick Aggregates. Likely the best place to learn and train Open Water Swimming in southern Ontario.
With many programs and events every year C3 does an incredible job at keeping this jewel as nice and functioning as it is.
We are making sure that the experience is the best we can offer. Our race is geared to all swimmers, beginners and experienced. The courses are set the closest to shore we can. The conditions in any open water body can change rapidly and that is why we are doing this race in a protected area that will ensure the safety of all participants.
The temperature of the water is pretty constant with a variation of + - 3 degrees celsius from 20C. We really hope to see most of you there!
