Just keep swimming...
There will be overhead signs displaying approximate swim times (4:00 min, 4:30, 5:00, etc.) Prior to the race, you should swim 300 meters to get your best estimate! Athletes will line up according to their estimated swim time. The fastest swimmers will go first. Two participants will start at the same time on opposite sides of the pool. Every 10 seconds two more participants will enter the water in the outside lanes. The participants will complete one lap (2 lengths of the pool) in the first lane, and then continue in the next adjacent lane, for a total of 6 lengths (300 meters) and finish in the center of the pool. Once the athletes complete the swim, they will exit the pool and move to the transition area in the grass located just outside the pool. If participating friends wish to line up next to each other for the start of the race, please line up according to the slower swimmers 300 meter time.
