ELIGIBILITY: This event is open ONLY to 2023 USMS members or foreign equivalents. Eligibility will be automatically verified for online entries. USMS “One-Event” membership - good for all swims this weekend - will be available for adults 18+ for all swims for $20. Participants must be a current USMS member in order to swim the USMS Marathon-Distance Open Water National Championship (10K). USMS One-event (OEVT) members are not eligible to swim in the USMS Marathon-Distance Open Water National Championship (10K) and must choose the Non-Championship 10K.
RULES: Current USMS rules will govern this event.
START/FINISH: All swims will start in the water and finish on the beach near the water’s edge. Each loop roughly follows the shoreline of the lake on the way out and follows a straight line back to the start/finish area.
SAFETY—OUR PRIMARY CONCERN: Safety boats will monitor the entire course and medical personnel will be on-site. Swimmers must wear the swim cap provided, must have their race number on their arms, and must follow all announced safety rules without exception. 10K & 5K swimmers may provide their own feedings which may be placed on a table in 4-foot deep water near the starting line.
Time Limit: Swimmers who cannot complete the 10K in 4.5 hours or the 5K in 2.5 hours should NOT enter these swims; swimmers on the course after these time limits may be stopped and listed as DNF in the results.
