    Race Start:

    All participants will start in the pool in 5 second intervals. Racers will be seeded for the swim according to their self-reported 400 meter swim time. Racers will be organized into "flights" and seated in the gym until their flights are called to the pool. Flights will be led from the gym to the pool area one at a time. This is a starting procedure that will minimize time spent standing on the pool deck prior to pool entry.
