Pacific Masters Swimming wraps up its Pandemic ePostal Challenge Series this month with our return-to-fitness benchmark 500 yard or 400 meter Free. Thank you for your participation. Information on the Challenge Series can be found here.
Deadline for entries: October 10, 2021 at 11:59 PM PST. No paper entries accepted - online entries only. Your online entry is not complete until you have received a confirmation of your entry by email. If you do not receive this confirmation following your entry, please contact the Meet Director. TIMING: A pace clock or stopwatch may be used for timing purposes. If you use a pace clock add “.99” to your documented time. For a time submitted with no tenths or hundredths, .99 second shall be added to the time submitted. The Meet Director reserves the right to remove any clearly incorrect results.
You may swim the event multiple times within the date range listed and enter your fastest time.
In-water starts are allowed but no time adjustments can be made.
Having a Starter and Timer to collect times is recommended but not required for event entry.
2020 USMS Rules govern these events, including USMS Rule 102.12.1 regarding swimwear.
Age on December 31, 2021 determines age group for this ePostal and the entire series.
Drafting, flotation, and propulsive devices (pull buoys, fins, paddles, snorkels, wet suits, etc.) are not permitted.
No more than two swimmers should share a lane. If a lane is shared, each swimmer must stay on his or her side of the lane during the entire race (i.e. no circle swimming).
USMS starts and strokes rules apply, but we will be using the honor system. Swim fast. Swim fair.
ENTRY FEES: Flat entry fee of $10 per swimmer for online registration. Please note: when paying by credit card, your credit card statement will reflect a charge from “ClubAssistant.com Events.” Net revenues above expenses for the challenge series events sponsored by Pacific Masters will be donated to USMS Adult Learn-to-Swim grants supported by the USA Swimming Foundation.
