Eligibility: Open to all swimmers 18 years & older as of July 10, 2010. All participants must be registered for 2010 with U.S. Masters Swimming (or the equivalent organization for non-U.S. swimmers). Foreign swimmers are not eligible for USMS records or All-American status. Paper entries received without a copy of entrant’s 2010 USMS card will be returned.

Safety: For safety reasons, swimmers who cannot complete 2 miles in 2 hours should NOT enter. Swimmers still on the course after the time limit will be stopped and listed as DNF in the results. In the event of inclement weather, the race director may close the course and thereby prevent swimmers from completing the race. The Charlottesville-Albemarle rescue/dive team will be on site with boats, scuba divers, and a rescue squad.
Seeding: Swimmers will be seeded fastest to slowest according to 1650 yard seed time and will be started in waves of 10 swimmers, staggered at 30-second intervals. “No Time” entries will be seeded in the final wave. Seeding changes and additions will not be allowed on race day.
Age Groups: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc. in five year increments, as high as necessary for both men/women.
