Tri! Ballantyne participants (Adults and Kids 10+ years) must submit a 100 yard swim time for seeding purposes. Any swim time changes can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. No changes will be made after Tuesday July 10th. Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest with their age group. Each participant will be assigned a number based on their swim time within their age group. They will then line according to their race number - #1, 2, 3, etc.
A staggered start race is where participants will be departing from the "in the water wall" start every 15 seconds. All Tri! Ballantyne swimmers will launch first from lane #6 and “snake” around six lane lines, swimming one way in each lane. They continue to swim one-way for all of the six lanes before exiting at the pool steps and heading to the transition area (TA). Race officials and volunteers will line up each swimmer and start them accordingly.
