PARKING / SWIM COURSE
Parking on race morning isn’t nearly as bad as you might think. Where ever you are coming from, head towards downtown Madison to the Capital. When you get to the Capital,your best bet would be to park to the north of the Capital building. (You
can park south
to get a “closer” spot, but expect more traffic, more people, etc.)To watch the swim, you can find a spot anywhere along the Monona Terrace. The roof-top will be packed with people. The North Helix can be a good spot to watch from.Ground level can also be good. If watching the swim start is not that important to you, you won’t have to get down there until 7:30-7:45 in order to start seeing everyone come outof the water.
Swim Finish: 8:15-8:30
The lady atop theCapital Building faces allthe action (swim course,transition, finish line, etc.)So if you get turnedaround while downtown,look up at the Capital, thelady up there will pointyou in the right direction!
