NM's longest running race - a definite NM tradition!

Sprint Triathlon Each racer must provide the time that they expect to take to finish the 400-meter swim. The start order will be assigned according to the seed times, with the fastest seed going first. The start order is also subject to the judgement of the Race Committee, and may be based on past performance.

The order will be posted at packet pickup on August 5. Swimmers will be started approximately every five to fifteen seconds. The starters will use their best judgement in the spacing of swimmers.

Course Information:
