4. The First Bridge

The Big Four Pedestrain Bridge will be the first bridge encountered on the swim course. You will swim under it on the downstream leg. Sight the second bridge support from the KY side and keep that support ON YOUR LEFT.

5. The I-65 Bridges

The second and third bridges encountered both support I-65. The supports for both of these bridges are quite close to the KY shoreline. Therefore you will want to keep them on your left.
