Any organised swim with a distance that meets the above requirements can be used to meet the qualifying time. It is your responsibility to check the cut-off times for any event you do participate in.
If you’d like to complete your own swim, we just need proof of your swim distance and time, EG from your Garmin (file link or screenshot). This can be uploaded to your entry records on our EventPlus online registration system (once you have entered).
Please note, the events are in the open water and therefore only an qualifying swims in open water are eligible (not pools)
