Why do I need to know how fast I swim 400 yards?

Due to the nature of a snake swim it is imperative that we know your estimated swim time so we can assign you to start times that similar to those around you. Although you still have the ability to pass a swimmer or stop at the end of a lane to allow others to pass you, starting with other swimmers similar in time allows for a better flow in the snake swim format.

The only real way you know your swim time is to test yourself. It is good to know how long it takes to swim 400 yards, which is 8 laps (a lap is down and back) or 16 lengths. If you don’t know your 400-yard swim time, test yourself either before registration opens or no later than April 10, 2023. If you feel you have indicated your swim time incorrectly during the registration process you may manage your own registration and update your swim time. This option will be closed on April 10, 2023 and you will not be able to make any updates after that date.
