2018 Swim Waves

The Rookie Tri utilizes a time trial swim start. Each wave, with the exception of the Open wave, will be a time trial start. The time trial starts consists of starting one person at a time at approximately 2-second intervals.

Participants will start with their assigned wave (eg. Rookie, Men 40 & Over), but the order within each wave is unimportant. The time for each person will start when they cross the swim start timing mat at the water’s edge.

Participants will line up within their wave on a first come basis.
