Event Overview

Swim The Loop starts and finishes at the Dockside Restaurant, which is located on Airlie Road (Wilmington side of the Intracoastal Waterway). The race will start at a high tide to ensure an even tide pattern throughout the 3.5 mile swim. Don’t be fooled though; there will be times of slight incoming tide, slight falling tide and a mostly slack tide.

Mott’s Channel Sprint starts at the Blockade Runner Resort, located on Wrightsville Beach, and finishes across the intracoastal at the Dockside Restaurant on Airlie Road.  The course is approximately 1.3 miles long and is a point to point swim.  The race will start at a high tide (based off of the Masonboro  Inlet tide chart) to try and ensure a slight incoming to slack tide throughout the 1.3 mile swim.
