The Sprint Distance race starts with a 0.5-mile, one-loop swim in the calm waters of Lake Lloyd, within sight of the iconic Daytona International Speedway track. Athletes will enter the water via a grass ramp, swim a single counter-clockwise loop, and exit via ramp to the Transition Area. The water temperature in Lake Lloyd is typically between 68 and 72 degrees.
