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 June 26th. E-mail
the Race Director, indicate your name, and the time you
wish to enter. ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGES ACCEPTED AFTER
cannot stress enough the importance of entering an accurate
time, but we are 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.
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 thing that Jimmy Carter tried to force us
to like about 35 years ago (we responded by shooting our guns
at metric speed limit signs). 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.
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.
