WOW Challenge – Wave Times

In accordance with our COVID-Safe plan, this year’s event is a timed event.
There will however be no specific start times for races or categories.
There will be no mass starts for this year’s WOW Challenge.
Instead you will be allocated a start window and a registrations time window.

We will have two lanes at the start line with two swimmers starting every 20 seconds.
Your time starts once you cross the start line and as usual ends when you cross the finish line.
