Course Details - The swim will be held in a 22-lane pool which was used in the 2008 Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, where world records were set.  Although in a pool for safety reasons, the course will be set up as an open water format with buoys but done in a pool to reinforce safety.  The run will be held on the surrounding fields on the CSAC property and be free from traffic.
