The swim course is an out and back course, which starts in front at the Minnesota Power Picnic Area Beach and proceeds South to the turn-around point. Swimmers will keep the swim buoys on their right-hand side for the entire swim. A neutral area, which is marked with buoys, where there are no swimmers, will separate the swimmers on the outbound and return legs of the swim. The swim course is monitored by lifeguards in kayaks.
