USMS Sanction : 369-W002
|Swimmer Registration||Mon, Apr 1, 2019 06:00 AM||Sun, Jul 7, 2019 11:59 PM|
SAFETY: Large buoys (approx. every 1/2 mile) will mark the course. Motor boats, kayaks and lifeguards will be located along the perimeter of the course. Swimmers must wear the swim caps provided at check-in. A MANDATORY safety meeting will be held before the event start. Friends and family who are not registered for this event cannot swim along with you.
MORE ABOUT SAFETY & PULLING SWIMMERS: We must maintain a certain swimmer-to-boat ratio to keep our permit AND, more importantly, to keep everyone safe. Swimmers that fall too far behind the pack or are not on target to finish the 3.2 mile event in 2 hours or less, will be pulled out of the water on the swim course.
RULES: Current USMS rules will govern this event.
TRANSPORTATION / PARKING / CARPOOLING: There is limited parking in the area of the event so carpooling is encouraged as much as possible. We are guests of the neighborhoods for this event so please observe and respect parking regulations. Swimmers are responsible for their own transportation from the check-in location at Madison Park Beach to the race start at Day Street Boat Launch (3 miles). We will encourage the formation of carpools at the conclusion of the pre-race safety meeting. Offer a ride to a fellow swimmers and fill up your car if driving to the starting point. If you got a ride to the starting point, please offer a ride back to the starting point after the race to your driver.
AWARDS: A whole salmon will be awarded to the fastest male and female swimmers in both the wetsuit and non-wetsuit divisions of the 3.2-Mile Race. Awards will be available for the top three finishers in all 5-yr age groups, in both divisions. Each registered participant will be given one event t-shirt, size to be selected during the event registration. Your age as of December 31, 2019 determines your age group for awards.
