 The Club is kind enough to host the event.  VRC does not allow swimmers to use the indoor showers located at the club building.  Please use the outdoor showers next to the race finish instead. There will also be 8 changing tents next to the bag drop station. 



Race organizers reserve the right to cancel the race they deem is the best interest and safety of the swimmers.

Your safety and observation of the law are of our top priorities.  Any non-compliance will result in immediate disqualification.

Thank you again for joining our race, and we need your cooperation to run the race as smoothly as possible under this special circumstance.  


We look forward to seeing you on Nov 14th!
