Safety: For safety reasons, swimmers who cannot complete 1 mile in 1 hour or 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.

Age Groups: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc. in five year increments, as high as necessary for both men/women.
Awards/ Social: For both races, custom awards will be given to the top 3 men & women finishers in each age group. The awards ceremony will take place on the beach following the 1-mile race. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
