SwimRun is a combination of teamwork, endurance and adventure. It is a challenging event completed in teams of two. SwimRun Lake James is located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina and offers rolling terrain with beautiful lake waters. Teams of 2 will tackle about 3-4 miles of swimming and 14-15 miles of running. The course will have about 14 run sections and 13 swim sections. The swim sections range from 20yds to 1300yds in a unique and picturesque lake setting. The run sections range from 25 meters to 7 miles. The runs are made up of fire service trail roads, single track trails, paved roads, and off the beaten path wooded sections. All of which will be well marked.
All selected athletes/teams will start and finish at the Fonta Flora Whippoorwill Farm. This area has LIMITED parking and is a brand new facility. PLEASE CARPOOL. We will have an overflow lot inside Lake James State Park (friend or event staff shuttle). This facility includes a smaller indoor tasting room and restrooms (we will also have Port-O-Johns). The Farm will host all race activities before, during, and after the event. We will have several smaller tents setup around the property for additional shelter. Stick around for food and yummy craft beer :)
An application is required for each team/team member to participate in the race. Applications are open until March 15th 2019. TO QUALIFY FOR THE PRIORITY REGISTRATION, TEAMS MUST SUBMIT ONE APPLICATION FOR 2 TEAM MEMBERS.
