The Tahoe Rough Water Swim is 1.2 miles long and 1.2 miles high and held on 14 September 2013, one week before the Ironman Lake Tahoe​ ​Triathlon. The 1.2-mile swim follows the same swim course as the inaugural Ironman Lake Tahoe. The plastic-free event is organized by Jamie Patrick and Paul Lundgren as it follows the principles of the Plastic Disclose Project event management.

The Tahoe Rough Water will be a four-point, rectangle out-and-back course. Each age group will start in their own wave 4 minutes apart. Course will be marked every 200m as well as large turn buoys. For safety reasons all waves start in hip high water.
