See event website for swimwear details. For the 500-meter Predicted Time Swim, swimmers may wear any swimwear or gear that they wish—except timepieces.

STARTS & SEEDING: The 1500 & 3000-meter swims will use a mass start. The 500-meter swim will use an individual start, seeded fastest to slowest by entered predicted time.

SAFETY—OUR PRIMARY CONCERN: Safety boats will monitor the entire course. Medical personnel will be available near the site. Swimmers must wear a brightly colored swim cap, have their race number on their arms or hands, and follow all announced safety rules without exception.

REGISTRATION: Save time, paper, & errors by registering online. Mail entries must be postmarked by August 9; on-line entries must be received by August 12. Entries after these dates will be considered day-of-race entries and must pay an additional $10 late fee. Help our planning by entering on time!

ENTRY FEES: One race (1500 or 3000-meter) is $30. Both races are $40. 500-meter Predicted Time Swim is FREE, but insurance surcharge is required. Entry fee includes a swim cap and the swims themselves. Beverages, brownies, cookies, & fruit will be available, but lunch will not be provided.

OMS policy concerning the 1500-meter Open Water Individual & Team Association Championships

Program: The championship event shall be a 1500-meter or 1-mile swim for swimmers in Category I suits.

Team Affiliation and Scoring: A swimmer shall represent the local team listed on the entry form. If no local team is listed, a swimmer shall represent the local team listed with his or her OMS membership. Swimmers with One-Event membership are required by USMS rules to swim as “Unattached”, and therefore cannot represent a local team. Cumulative team scoring shall be based upon point value by age group: 8-6-4-3-2-1.

Category II Swimwear: Swimmers wearing Category II suits (including wetsuits) may participate in the event without the possibility of placing in the individual championship or scoring team points. [Note that separate ribbons are awarded for Category II suits].
