Course Description
50M Swim (or wade) along the beach (you can wade if you prefer), and a 500M Run through the park to the finish line.

The runners start, with a swim, or wade, in waist deep water.  The group will be divided into a swimmers wave, and a waders wave (waders must be in water that is slightly above their waist. Each wave will start separately, and if you are in the swimmers wave, you must swim the entire distance - no wading. Swimmers and waders will travel parallel to the beach until they reach the 50m buoy, where they turn and run in to shore.

They then run from the water to the Terry Fox Stadium Finish Line in their shoes (or not) which is a 500m run from the beach through the park. A shirt with their number on it must be worn on the run portion.
