There are no official awards and the max participants will be 70 athletes per event. There will be no "age" groups, and the swim start will consist of two wave starts: all males followed by all females three minutes afterwards. Wetsuits will only be permitted if water temp is 78 or colder. NEW this year is timing splits provided by Gulfsport Timing!
