No refunds or transfers.
In the event of inclement weather the following procedures will be followed:
1. The event will be delayed 45 minutes in hopes the inclement weather will pass.
2. If inclement weather does not pass in 45 minutes, the swim will be cancelled. No refunds or transfers will be issued.
The top three males and females and top overall master male/female (40+) will receive overall awards. The top 3 in 5-year age-group categories will receive awards (no duplication). We do not mail or deliver awards, so if you want your award you need to stay for the awards ceremony.
Specially designed t-shirts will be given to competitors who sign up 1 week prior. We will do our best to provide t-shirts to everyone who signs up, but if you sign up in the last week we won't guarantee a t-shirt. We do not mail or deliver t-shirts after the event for any reason, so if you want a t-shirt you need to sign up in time, and attend the event.
Entries are limited to the first 400 entrants per event.
As a policy, there are no make-up dates. We will only cancel an event if absolutely necessary for the safety of participants. If it is feasible we will reschedule.

Why open water?
We are big fans of open water racing and training, and while North Carolina has plenty of triathlons, we don't a lot of organized open water races. We're changing that!
