The Applegate Lake Open Water Weekend is held at Applegate Lake in Jacksonville, Oregon. It is part of the 2013 Oregon Open Water Series and 2018 Oregon Swimcation. The Applegate Lake Open Water Weekend is on 13-14 July 2013 where the 3x500m Pursuit Sprint Relay, 1.5 km, 2.5 km, 5 km, and 10 km races are hosted by the Rogue Valley Masters.

Venue[edit]

Applegate Lake is located in the heart of the Siskiyou Mountains in southwestern Oregon.

Course[edit]

The course consists of multiple 2.5 km loops depending on the race. Water temperature on race day has varied from 70-74ºF (21-23ºC).

All swims start in the water and finish on the beach near the water’s edge. Each 2.5 km loop roughly follows the contours of the lake shore on the way out and is approximately a straight line back to the start/finish area.

Feeding Station[edit]

The 5 km and 10 km swimmers provide their own beverages which will be placed on a table in 4-foot deep water near the starting line.

Time Limit[edit]

Swimmers who cannot complete the 10 km in 4.5 hours or the 5 km in 2.5 hours should not enter; swimmers on the course after these time limits may be stopped and listed as DNF in the results.
