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.

Cut-Off Time (Full): 2 hours 20 minutes
Cut-Off Time (Half): 1 hour 30 minutes
To view the swim course, stay at the Blockade Runner.  Ask for special rates for triathlon participants and their families.
