2001 Distance Challenge is a year long competition to see who swims the furthest distance in the year 2001. By signing up, swimmers can compare their year to date swim totals with other swimmers from around the world.
How it works
The race begins January 1st. The member with the most yards/meters at the end of the year wins. SwimmingCommunity.Com will track the distance that you log in your personal workout log to determine your standing, who is in the lead at any point and who, eventually, wins the race. You can check your standing as often as you want.
Any type of swimming workout is valid provided no external propulsion is used and swims are done in still water.
Sign up and start logging your workouts.
Workouts must be logged in SwimLog or QuickLog no more than 5 days after the actual workout date. That is, you can log a workout for January 1st on January 15th but the distance will not be counted toward the race distance.
Standings will be calculated real time.
Race begins January 1st. You can register anytime, however you must log workouts within five days of the actual swim.
There is no fee. (Awards will be commensurate to the entry fee)
There will be overall winners and winners for various age groups.
