The Open Water Swim is straight across the shallow portion of the boat ramp at Lake Alan Henry. We will have lifeguards standing in the water beside the swimmers. The swimmers will be following a lane rope to guide their swim. If a swimmer needs to stop and rest they can hold onto a lifeguard or rope or touch the bottom to rest. The average water temperature in Lake Alan Henry is 74-78 degrees.
