Hosted at Pleasants Landing Marina on Lake Anna, this race and venue are amazing. The swim takes place in the southeast portion of Lake Anna, about 1/4 mile from where the “hot side” of Lake Anna empties into the cold side, resulting in water temperatures that are 4-6 degree’s warmer than the rest of the lake at this time of year. So, you can look forward to above average water temperatures in late April. The first open water race of the regular season starts at 9AM, so you can sleep in a little and make it a day at the lake with family and friends.
Views of Lake Anna and the Blue Ridge Mountains give this race a magical feel, it’s a great place to race and spend the weekend outside.
