SwimRI Organizes Local Heats of USMS 1-Hour ePostal National Championship

UPDATE: These organized heats are now open to any USMS member regardless of club affiliation. If your preferred heat is full select another heat, let us know, and if possible we'll move people around to fill all the lanes.

This winter the SwimRI workout group is once again helping its parent club, New England Masters Swim Club, defend its national title in the USMS 1-Hour ePostal National Championship by running organized heats for USMS-NEM-SWMR members on January 26th at URI, February 9th at RWU and, if needed, a makeup heat on February 22nd at CCRI. If you're not a 2020 member, click here to join or renew.

In this USMS-sanctioned event you may swim whatever stroke(s) you wish, at whatever pace you wish, continuously or with breaks. All participants must be USMS members and adhere to the event rules. For past years' results, click here. To read about the long history of the 1-Hour Swim, click here.

By reserving a spot in our local heats via our SignupGenius form you agree to honor your commitment (barring emergency) and consent to NEM-SWMR coaches officially registering you in the 2020 USMS ePostal National Championship and submitting your splits and yardage on your behalf.

The $30 swimmer fee includes the $10 USMS event registration fee and a $20 nonrefundable donation that covers pool costs and supports the URI and RWU varsity swim teams, in exchange for which the college swimmers will count and record splits for us during our Hour Swim heats. You can donate more to either college team onsite at the swim via cash or check. If you prefer, you may bring your own counter/recorder.

The SwimRI coaches reserve the right to adjust swimmers' heat and lane assignments if/as needed.
