is a pool swim and swimmers will be seeded according to swim
time, fastest to slowest. Please turn in an accurate 300
meter swim time on your entry. Athletes not swimming
within one minute of their seed time will be highlighted in
the race results and variances from seed times will be posted.
If you do not enter a swim time, you will be placed at the END
of the seeded athletes. You have the option of changing your
swim time up until midnight of July 17th. E-mail
the Race Director, indicate your name, and the time you
wish to enter. ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGES ACCEPTED AFTER
JULY 17th. NONE. No, not even you.
cannot stress enough the importance of entering an accurate
swim time, but we are certainly going to try. If you do not
enter an accurate time, a LOT of people are going to be VISIBLY
upset, and EVERYONE will notice and point you out at every race
for the rest of your life while whispering things about you
behind your back. We will assign people to LOUDLY question your
lineage, and pelt you with rocks and garbage. So for Pete's
sake, go to a pool BEFORE you enter the race,
bring a watch, and TIME YOURSELF. Remember,
it's 300 METERS, NOT YARDS. Meters are part of the
Metric System, that mysterious system of measurement that the
rest of the civilized world, including Canada (how hard could
it be?), uses to measure stuff. THERE IS A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A YARD AND A METER (to convert a yard swim
time to meters, multiply by 1.1. Or use the internet. You probably
have an app for it. We really don't care, just get it right).
Then, instead of putting down some random set of numbers on
your entry form, you'll put down an accurate time, and everyone
will be much happier. Trust us, it's for your own good. Also,
we need your current weight in Stones* (*No we don't).
NOTE : YOU WILL BE SEEDED ACCORDING TO THE TIME YOU PUT ON YOUR
ENTRY. THE RACE DIRECTOR ALSO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO RESEED YOU
IF YOUR SEED TIME IS INCONSISTENT WITH PREVIOUS RACE RESULTS.
AND HE WILL TOTALLY DO IT TOO.
