With the increase in numbers, we have streamlined how you get to the actual start line. In previous years, all swimmers were able to be in the start area, but this year only the starting wave will be allowed at the Start Line. Make sure you know the wave you are in by the colour of your swim cap (your wave # will also be clearly marked in your event package).
How it works: To start, only Wave 1 is allowed in the Start Area. Wave 2 will be in Corral A and Waves 3-6 will be in Corral B. Once the swim has started and Wave 1 is swimming, Wave 2 will move into the Start Area, Wave 3 will move to Corral A, and Waves 4-6 will remain in Corral B and so on. Each wave is separated by approximately 2-3 minutes.
All swimmers must cross over the timing mat. If you do not cross over the mat, we are assuming you are NOT SWIMMING!
Be sure to get your warm ups and potty time in before you go to Corral A and the Start Area as the wave won’t wait for you!
