Pre-Race Safety Meeting
Safety/Time Limit – Our Primary Concern: For safety reasons, participants should be adequately trained for open water competition. Previous open water experience is required and participants should be able to swim a pool mile under 30 minutes. Swimmers not completing the race course in the required time of 1.5 hours for the 2.4 miles, and 1 hour for the 1.2 mile race will be removed from the course. Swimmers in the water after the time limit will be notified that the race is over and they must leave the water at that time. Results will show their time as Did Not Finish. (DNF) Safety watercrafts (e.g., jet ski.) and lifeguards on paddleboards and marshals will monitor the entire course. Swimmers must wear body-marked race numbers on arms and cap for identification. Medical personnel will be on-site. Read the Event Safety and Medical Plan at http://www.nadadoresroughwaterswim.org/w/index.cfm
Conditions: Since the safety of swimmers is of prime concern, the swimming event may be delayed or canceled due to bad conditions. The Event Director and OC Lifeguards will make this decision.
Relays: Relays for the 2.4 mile event are cumulative. Swimmers may enter one same gender relay (4 swimmers) or mixed gender (2 men + 2 women). All relays must be registered with the same USMS club and be registered for the individual event. Substitution of relay swimmers allowed up to 7:00am on race day. Late race day relay PAPER entries only will be accepted until 7:00am with a late relay entry fee of $25 per relay.
