The Competition

Speed Event

Can you complete the course before the clock runs out? Athletes competing in the FINA Speed event will be presented the opportunity to run a course that consists of eight (8) consecutive obstacles. Each FINA Speed course will have a fixed time limit, established by the course administrator and the members of the FINA Board.

Endurance Event

Athletes that compete in a FINA Endurance event, will be tested with a twelve (12) obstacle course designed to push the athlete to the limit, exhausting all major muscle groups. Each FINA Endurance course will have a max time limit per athlete, predetermined by the course administrator and the FINA Board.

The Age Brackets

There are four kids divisions along with two adult divisions. Adult divisions include ages 16-40 and 40+ (Masters).

Athletes can elect to compete in the age group of which their age falls on July 1, 2019 of the year of the start of the season. Additionally, an athlete can choose to compete up one age grouping. An athlete can petition to the FINA board to compete in a grouping that exceeds one age grouping up.

Masters athletes can choose to compete in either the Adult or the Masters division.

For all athletes, the age grouping for the entire season will be determined by the age grouping competed in during their first competition of the season.

Athletes may register for a single event or register for both the Speed and Endurance events. The combined registration is the best value and the most popular package. Registration includes one spectator pass. Check-in times will begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 7 and 9 a.m. on Sunday, March 8.
