Event: There will be two races: a 2-mile cable swim at 8:30 am and a 1-mile cable swim beginning at 10:30 am. The 2-mile swim will consist of 4 laps in a counter-clockwise direction around a ¼-mile straightaway cable, with start and finish in the water. The 1-mile race will consist of 2 laps around the ¼-mile cable in a clockwise direction. Both the 1- and 2-mile distances are certified and qualify for national records. No splits or premature finishes will be eligible for records. The lake opens at 7:00 am and warm-up on the course will be available from 7:15-8:15 am.
• Anticipated water temp: 78° to 82°

Check-in Closes at:

1-Mile: 10:15 AM

Eligibility: Open to all swimmers 18 years & older as of July 14, 2012. Paper entries must include a copy of your 2012 USMS card. Online entries will be verified automatically. “One Event” is available through online registration for an additional fee of $25.30. To renew or join USMS online, visit www.usms.org/reg.

Rules: Current 2012 USMS rules will govern both races.

Entries: All snail mail entries must be postmarked by July 6, 2012. Online entries will close at 11:59pm Eastern Time on July 10, 2012. Late or race-day entries will NOT be accepted. You may enter both events. Online entry is strongly encouraged. Entry fee is $25/ $40. No refunds, exchanges or swimmer substitutions for any reason.

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.

Seeding: Swimmers will be seeded fastest to slowest according to 1650 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.

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.
