Start in Chicago

Finish in Michiana, MI (40 Miles) or Michigan City, IN (36 miles approx.) depending on the conditions. If it’s determined that it’s safe enough to swim (no lightening) but with very difficult conditions, then we’ll go the shorter distance. 

The course is point-to-point, and there are no markers or buoys for navigation. 

Swimmers will follow a lead boat that will guide them via GPS, to keep them on course.
