All swimmers will need to certify that they have the required proficiency to safely complete the distance that they are registering for, prior to August 8, 2010. If you participated in our event last year, you are pre-qualified for that distance or the next longer distance. Qualifying requirements are as follows:
- 12.6-mile swimmers must supply proof (results page) that you've completed a 10K or longer swim in an official event.
- 10k swimmers must supply proof that you've completed a 5k or longer swim in an official event
- 4.8-mile swimmers must supply proof that you've completed a 2.4 mile swim (Ironman distance) or a 5K event or longer in an official event, or the Dwight Crumb Pier to Pier Swim with a finish time in the top 40% of finishers.
- 2.4-mile swimmers must supply proof that you've completed a 1.2-mile swim (1/2 Ironman), the Dwight Crum Pier-to-Pier swim, or a 2-mile swim or longer.
You will be asked to provide the name and date of your qualifying swim on the registration form.
