DEFINITION OF A WETSUIT:
Attention Wetsuit and Non-Wetsuit divisions: Please note that ANY suit that goes above the hip or below the top of the knee cap is considered a BODY SUIT or wetsuit. Any swimmer in the age group or elite divisions wearing a bodysuit (a.ka. “legskin”) is disqualified. Referees will be at the finish line to be sure this rule is applied.
TIME LIMIT POLICIES:
A cutoff time of 55 minutes for the entire swim will be strictly enforced. This cutoff time has been established to ensure the safety of swimmers and to ensure we comply by the policy as dictated in our insurance agreement. We certainly do not take great delight in having to enforce this kind of restriction. Swimmers who fail to complete the required distance under the established cutoff time will be visited by a motorized safety craft and required to exit the swim immediately. Swimmers who fail to make either cutoff time will be considered disqualified non-finishers.
Elite, Age Groups, Wetsuit and Team
TEAM DIVISION POLICIES:
High School, Club and Collegiate teams of 15 or more swimmers. Please contact race organizers at 415-306-0716 for team discount codes.
