The swim will take place in the 'East lake' of the Queensford Water Park.
The swim will start at 8.30am sharp.
The 1km swim will consist of 2 x 500m laps (see diagram right)
The start will be a deep water start, a short distance from the shoreline to give those less confident the option to start from a shallower, more suitable depth of water should they desire.
There is an ideal, naturally sloping beach into the lake, as well as a concrete slipway for the swim exit.
There is a short 50m run from the swim exit to transition.
