Timing Chip and Body Marking guidelines: Each individual participant (adult race only) will be given a timing chip at packet pick up. In addition to bib identification individuals will also have their bib number marked on the arm to help identify them throughout the race.
Swim Caps: There will be a race day swim cap provided for each participant in their welcome packet. It is required that all swimmers use this swim cap during the swimming portion. No Cap = No Swim
Swim: 300 yard INDOOR pool swim. The swimming portion of the race will begin with a time trial start in waves 15 seconds apart. Time trial starts will be based off of estimated finishing times, if you would like to complete a time trial you may visit the aquatic center the week of 8/5/18 to complete such free of charge. Each swimmer will enter the pool feet first and do a push start. Each swimmer will complete a 50 yard swim in each lane using a circle swimming pattern. After completing their 50 yards the swimmer leading will move under the lane line to the next lane followed by the remaining swimmers to continue their laps. See the map on the next page. In the case of needing to pass a swimmer the passing swimmer will tap the swimmer ahead of them after which this swimmer will stop at the wall and allow the passing swimmer to continue ahead of them. During the Kids and Tiny Tikes race if a child needs a lifejacket to participate they will be allowed to wear one.
