The field is set for the 2013 BLS

Registration opened at 1:00pm EST on March 1st and closed at 1:08pm!!

That is right. The solo spots filled in 8 minutes! We knew the spots would fill quickly, like in a day or so, but we had no idea that demand would be this strong. It goes to show you that the sport of open-water swimming is growing like a wave reaching the shore.

In the coming years we will have to switch to a lottery system to make it fair for everyone. We wish we could expand the field and include everyone, but for the sake of safety we have to keep the event relatively small.

For those of you who got in, congratulations. For those of you who got shut out, set your sights on 2014 and you can always volunteer to help out during this year’s event.

As an added incentive to volunteering, we will allow all volunteers from the previous year to pre-register before the lottery opens (that is a guaranteed spot)!
