Course:  In the 1-mile event, swimmers will complete 2 loops, each consisting of swimming out one side of a 1/4-mile, underwater cable marked with buoys and returning on the other side.  The 2-mile swim will be four loops around the 1/4-mile cable.  Times for both races are eligible for USMS long-distance national records.  The 1-mile & 2-mile swims will be contested in the same direction, which will be decided by a coin toss during Friday afternoon course set-up.

Eligibility:  Open to all swimmers 18 years & over as of August 12, 2017.  All swimmers must be registered with USMS (or the equivalent FINA organization for foreign swimmers). Annual or one-event registration form can be completed online during entry process.   

Rules:  Current USMS rules will govern this event.  Category II suits—including wetsuits—are allowed but swimmers wearing other than Category I suits will not be eligible for individual or relay national records. 

Entry fees:  Entry fee is $55 for one event or $80 for both.  Entry fee includes cap & post-race refreshments. Non-USMS members add $20 for One event registration. Online Registration only.

Deadline:  Monday August 7 at 11:59 PM EDT.


Safety-Our Primary Concern:  Safety boats will monitor the entire course and Lake Placid Ambulance Service will be on-call within one mile of the event. Swimmers must wear the swim caps provided, have their race number on their arms/back, and follow all announced safety rules without exception.

Time Limit: Swimmers who cannot complete one mile in 50 minutes or two miles in 1:45 should NOT enter. Swimmers on the course after these time limits may be stopped and listed as DNF in the results.

Seeding: Swimmers will be seeded fastest to slowest, using each swimmer’s time for a 1650 yd pool swim. “No Time” & wetsuit entries will be seeded last. Races will be seeded before race day, so you must declare if you plan to wear a wetsuit on your entry. There will be no seeding changes once heat sheets are posted.

Starts:  In both swims, each heat will consist of seeded waves of swimmers each starting 20-30 seconds apart.
