- If you are not present at prize giving you will not receive your prize at a later stage.
The “No chip, NO swim, No time” rule is in effect. No Chip will also mean you are not eligible for prizes.
The timing chip(s) are being loaned to you for the event. If you do not return the chip, you will be charge R100 per lost chip.
Open water swimming can be dangerous if you are not adequately trained or medically fit.
We would STRONGLY advise the following:
If you haven’t trained enough – don’t swim
If you had a large night out the night before – don’t swim
If you’re not feeling well in any way or have been sick – don’t swim
If you’ve taken anything that could put added strain on your heart
(eg multiple energy drinks) – don’t swim
If you’ve been taking narcotics – don’t swim
DON’T TAKE A CHANCE. BE A SAFE SWIMMER.
