Note About the 1650 Free   We are attempting to encourage triathletes to participate in swim meets. So we will have two sessions for the 1650 freestyle. We should be able to complete five heats in each session – allowing up to eighty swimmers to participate in this event. For registration and seeding purposes each session will be treated as a separate event. In other words, you may select the session in which you wish to participate and each session will be seeded fastest to slowest. The results from both sessions will be combined to determine final results, placement and points. 

Awards    Individual event ribbons will be given for 1st thru 8th place in each age group (men and women) for each individual and relay event. High point awards will be given for each age group (men and women). High point awards require entry in at least five (5) individual events. Team awards for the top three teams.
