Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake Swimming

Sierra Open Water Swim Series Championship

Sierra Open Water Swim Championships

How Points Are Earned and Calculated:

All swimmers (wetsuits and non-wetsuit categories) are scored in order of timed finish, by gender. We plan to have a wetsuit and non-wet suit Championship once the Series grows in participation.

  • 1 participation point for each race you participate in
  • Top 5 overall
  • Top 5 male and Top 5 female
  • Top five in your age/gender
    • 14-19, 20-24, 25-29 and up to oldest competitor (age as of 12/31)
  • Longer races score more points
    • 1/2 mile 1x
    • 1.2 mile 2x
    • 2.4 mile 3x
  • The Truckee Swim Classic is the championship event. This event will earn 1.5 x the point values. Awards will be provided at this event.

Point Breakdown:

  • 1st = 5 points
  • 2nd = 4 points
  • 3rd = 3 points
  • 4th = 2 points
  • 5th = 1 points

Rules:

You must race in a minimum of three races. If you race in more than three races, your top three scores will be taken. For example, if you compete in 4 races, your top three scores are taken and the other two are dropped. Note, you receive a 1 participation point for each race you race.

Awards:

At the end of the series we will award the winning male and female with very cool SWAG from Big Blue Adventure and other sponsors. As the Series grows will will award to the top three men and women in the wetsuit and non-wetsuit categories.

Series Races:

  • Sand Harbor Open Water Swim
  • Alpine Fresh Water Swim “formally the Truckee Open Water Swim”
  • Lake Tahoe Open Water Swim
  • Truckee Swim Classic
