The 1 mile race course will be a loop from the start/finish to the Coney Island Pier. The 10K race course will be two 5K loops between Coney Island Pier and the east end of Brighton Beach. Start and finish will be on the beach in front of the New York Aquarium. The swim course will be clearly marked with large, brightly colored buoys. Wave designations and swim direction will be determined close to race date subject to number of participants and water/weather conditions. Expected water temperature range 65-70 F, with some chop due to wind and the possibility of flotsam, jetsam and jellyfish.
