HFP Racing Swim Start Procedure (Kids, Mini, Sprint and Olympic)

As indicated in the above schedule each division will be called to the start line based on their age or division. We will send off each wave 3 participants at a time every 3 seconds. This allows for better flow and safety during the swim portion of the race. It is very important for participants to be ready to entry the start corral when called to the start line so please plan accordingly.
