DeGray Lake: rated as one of the cleanest fresh water lakes in America.
The race begins with an in water start. The Entry and Finish area is located at the base of a large boat ramp.
Historically the water temp in early Mayt is in the High 60's to low 70's to. If water temp is below 78F wet suit will be allowed.

No aid stations are on the XTERRA Gator Terra Bike course.  There will be a Feed Station for the Epic on the bike course at mile 15.

Aid Stations on the run course are roughly 1.5 miles apart.  I would suggest that all racers carry water / Nutrition with them during the run. 

Run Course is a combination of Forest roads, meadows, creeks, single track, pavement and what ever else I can figure out to throw at ya.....
