Each training swim will cross Lake Andrea, following the Iron Girl swim course, starting from the beach on the west side of the lake. The distance is approximately ½ mile. Participants have the option of swimming back, for a total distance of 1 mile. Buoys have been placed at ¼ and ½ of the distance across the lake. Lifeguards in kayaks accompany swimmers and carry noodles for those who would like additional assistance. A rescue swimmer also accompanies swimmers making the training run.
The Iron Girl Triathlon will take place on Sunday, August 10.
