TIME SUBMISSION

Please submit times via e-mail to the event director:  Mark Johnston (Coach@FlowSwimmers.com).

 

Submitted times must be tracked via the open water setting of GPS-enabled wearable (Garmin, Apple, Fitbit, etc.). Include the following information:

  • Swimmer Name:

  • Location of Swim:

  • Date and of Swim:

  • Time of Day of Swim:

  • Duration of Swim:

  • Relevant Event: 800M, 1500M, 1.93K, or 3.86K

  • Category of Swimwear:  Wetsuit or Skin

  • Map/GPS Track:

  • *Assist Conditions:  Current or flow note

  • Picture (optional but COOL!):

  • Conditions (optional water temp, air temp, wind, etc.):

Where necessary, “over-distances” will be adjusted by 100M averages to fit the relevant stage:  16-minutes, 1600M swim = adjusted 15-minute time for a 1500M distance.  The Event Director will make the necessary conversions.

Times from official events may be submitted (without GPS tracking).

*To account for currents, swims held in flowing water (rivers, tides, etc.) must be swum 50% against the current and 50% with the current. Reach out to the event host for clarification.

Times may be submitted TWICE to allow for improvement in conditions, fitness, etc.  Only times submitted before the STAGE DEADLINE will count toward the STAGE RESULTS.  The BEST times, regardless of when submitted, will be used for the cumulative GRAND SLAM results.

If you sign up late or "miss" a stage, you are encouraged to submit a time for that distance to be considered in the GRAND SLAM.

GRAND SLAM rankings will be updated weekly and posted online at www.FlowSwimmers.com and Meet Mobile. Certificates of accomplishment, compete with event rankings, will be e-mailed out at the end of each stage, and awards will be presented for those swimming all four events to complete the GRAND SLAM.
