Event Site Rules
The last day to change your swim time is Friday March 22nd. You can do this by logging into your profile, selecting this race registration and updating your swim time. Be sure to enter your time in MM:SS format.
Based upon your estimated 100 yard swim time you will be assigned a specific start time. It is in your best interest to submit a time as accurate as possible. Submitting a time that is too fast for you puts you up with swimmers who will be passing you during the swim - not good for you or them. Putting a time that is too slow places you with slower swimmers and forces you to have to pass everyone. The ideal scenario for all participants is to have people submit accurate times - the whole swim flows better.
Note - You should not submit your "all-out effort" time. The time that should be submitted your the 100-yard "pace" that you can maintain for the entire swim.
This event will be using the ChampionChip Timing System. (5 splits provided)
You must turn in your timing chip at the conclusion of your race or you will be billed for the replacement!
