How will the swim start go?

+

Unlike our other events, this event's swim course will take place in a pool (the Kelly Pool in West Fairmount Park.) The swim start will be a time trial start by waves. Waves will be self seeded by ability. Athletes will enter the water 2 at a time at one end of the pool and swim eight (8) lengths of the pool in a serpentine fashion [swim up lane 1, down lane 2, up lane 3… and finish in lane 8] There will be ample certified lifeguards on sight. If at any point an athlete feels the need to rest they can simply grab the lane line located on either side. There is NO penalty to do so… this is all about finishing!

Is the bike course flat?

+

Yes! Flat and fast!

Can I switch my shirt size?

+

All race items (personalized bibs, shirts, etc.) are typically ordered 45 days in advance - for this event in particular, that date is May 24th. Should you need to switch your shirt size BEFORE this date, please email us at info@delmosports.com. Should you need to switch your shirt size AFTER this date, you may swap your shirt out should we have any extra, after the event on Sunday at the Info Tent. Please keep in mind that this is a first come, first serve basis and we do this in an effort for everyone to get the sizes they ordered. Thank you for your cooperation!

Is there a cut off time for the swim?

+

We have no cut off time for the swim, however, if we see that you are having extreme difficulty, we do have the right to remove you from the pool. We highly doubt that will happen though!

What are the swim times?
