The Challenge Atlantic City swim will take place in the placid back bays of Atlantic City. Located between the mainland and Historic Bader Field, our swim course gives spectators a terrific opportunity to view the entire swim course from one location. Also, from Bader Field, the entire skyline of Atlantic City is within sight. From windmills to casinos, bridges, and boathouses, the swim location of Challenge Atlantic City is perfect for everyone.
The course is simple. Half Distance athletes will complete one loop, full distance athletes two loops.
Transition Area: Bader Field will serve as our transition area where athletes switch from the Swim to Bike and Bike to Run. Just like the AC TRI, athletes will exit the water via temporary dock station, run to their bicycles, and exit Bader Field via the access gate just east of the Flyers Skate Zone.
