Swim the 3 most beloved, short course events - 200 Fly, 400 IM, 1650 Free - in their entirety in any 25-yard pool you choose. Event times are submitted online or by mail so you can compare yourself to other swimmers completing the same 3 events. The cumulative times submitted determine the order of finish. If two or more swimmers report the same cumulative time, a tie will be declared.

LOCATION: You may swim the Brute Squad in any 25-yard length pool.

ELIGIBILITY: This is a PacMasters-sanctioned event and all participants must be registered for 2012 or 2013 with USMS (or the equivalent organization for non-U.S. swimmers).

INDIVIDUAL EVENTS: Men and women compete separately in age groups of five-year increments: 18-24, 25- 29, 30-34,...100+. The swimmer's age on the day he or she actually completes his or her Brute Squad events will determine his or her age group.

RELAY EVENTS: Relay events will be contested in 3 categories: 3 men, 3 women, or 2 mixed (2 men + 1 woman -or - 2 women + 1 man). Each relay member MUST also enter the individual event and be registered with the same club. Unattached swimmers are not permitted on relays. The youngest relay member's age shall determine the relay's age group. Age groups are 18+, 25+, 35+, … 95+.
The cumulative times for the 3 participants individual swims will be the aggregate relay time., i.e. Swimmer #1 (200Fly + 400IM + 1650Free) plus Swimmer #2 (200Fly +400IM + 1650Free) plus Swimmer #3 (200Fly + 400IM + 1650Free).
