|Experience Requirement:||Safety concerns require us to ensure that every participant in a NYC Swim swim event has adequate swim experience; thus we have set certain qualifying standards for participation in each of our events. You may register for a NYC Swim event even if you have not completed a qualifying swim, and your enrollment will be approved upon verification of your qualifying swim details. The experience requirement for participating in the Aquathlon: Stars & Stripes is as follows:|
The completion of any
NYC Swim open water swim, Aquathlon or open water swim
clinic since January 1, 2006
--- or ---
--- or ---
--- or ---
Pool certification in a manner consistent with the sample template
, which can be accessed on your user profile swimmer page, documenting the completion of a continuous 1-mile pool swim (1650 yards/1500 meters) in 45 minutes or better since January 1, 2008. Swim must take place in a traditional swimming pool; "Endless Pool" swims are not acceptable for qualification purposes. [How to upload pool certification]
All pool certifications and qualifying swim information must be received by NYC Swim at least 14 days prior to the date of the race (no later than June 29, 2008). Swimmers who enroll after June 29th must submit their qualification information to NYC Swim within 24 hours of enrollment. Participants' qualifications will not be accepted, reviewed or approved on race day.
|Predicted Water Conditions:||Approximately 70 to 75 degrees. Swimmers wearing wetsuits/non-traditional swim attire will not be eligible for awards in this year's race. The full wetsuit policy can be viewed here. |
There can be a substantial amount of chop in the water from wind & tide action. The waterways are salt-water and there is shipping traffic. There may be random jetsam & flotsam in the waterways. For additional information on swimming and water quality in the Hudson River, please see our FAQ page.
