This is a 1.2 mile loop, well marked with large buoys, patrolled by lifeguards and volunteers in a variety of watercraft. The average water temperatures for Devil's Lake in July is 69 degrees F.
Directions to race start:
South Shore, Devil's Lake State Park
From HWY 12 heading north, Right on Hwy 78 (through Sauk and Prairie Du Sac), Left on Hwy 113, Left on South Lake Rd. This will take you to the park entry. Pass through there and head to the parking lot to the left or straight ahead. Make sure to display your park sticker or one day pass (which you get when you pick up your packet).
We are meeting at the large, Red Oak shelter (where concessions are, NOT the same as last year). There are bathrooms, changing rooms and showers there.
