In Washington DC for the World Championship Series

It's the day before race day and I'm not sure what to expect tomorrow. There was heavy rain this morning and thunder and as a result the river water quality is below the required clear level. If there is no back up swimming venue, we will be racing a duathlon 5km run / 40km bike / 10km run.
I won the Beauvais French Grand Prix last weekend which was a sprint triathlon and ran an average of 3min 24sec per km, I will need to run a lot more like 3min 15sec per km for the first 5km to keep in touch to the front of the field going onto the bike leg.
A duathlon for the Triathlon World Championships Series!!, I'm not really sure how that works..
