The Swim will take place in the Tulare Western High School Swimming Pool. Lane lines will be in the pool to create swim lanes. The race will include two waves. More will be added if necessary. The male participants will be in the first wave. The racers seed themselves based on expected swim completion time. There will be slower lanes, regular lanes, and fast lanes. This will be explained at the race meeting at 7:40 a.m. on race day. Please know your estimated time for completing the 400 yards. There will not be more than four swimmers per lane, with a goal of 3 or fewer swimmers per lane. Swimmers will be required to circle swim in the lane unless there are two or fewer swimmers per lane.
