Q: I am new to triathlons, how safe is the swim portion?
A: Our swim portion is very safe. We have swimming noodles that layout the swim portion, and participants can hold onto the noodles if needed. The Leech Lake Area Dive Team is also in the water both in their boat as well as Kayaks. If a participant needs help, they just need to raise an arm for assistance.
