The B2B swim course will be staged at
Wrightsville Beach and will feature a mass beach start. The swim takes
place in a channel that starts in Banks Channel
behind Wrightsville Beach and the
Blockade Runner Beach Resort.
It is connected to the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway; so it's a
salt water swim but not in the ocean. An incoming tide with participants
swimming with the current will make for some very fast times for the 2.4
mile (full) and 1.2 mile
(half) course. The water temperature will be in the upper 60's to
low 70's - perfect for wetsuit use. The Half Iron distance athletes will
begin at 8:30AM in order to allow the full athletes to be well past the
start line for the half.
