Age groups- *5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14; Additional SuperSprint distance added this year for ages 11-17 (optional). Everyone will receive a medal as they cross the finish line. Post race food and beverages will be provided at the Mohegan Park Center. Each participant will be required to purchase an annual USAT membership (if you are not already a member) for $10 which covers the whole year for any race. If you particpated in the Proud to DU It race- you do not need to pay the $10 again. It is a 1 X fee per year.

Age group winners will be awarded trophies for the top three finishers in each age group (male/female) at the post race ceremony based on finish time. SuperSprint will award finishers for the top three male and female finishers overall. The SuperSprint is a longer distance race for those looking to go farther.
Please note: 11-17 and Supersprint participants will swim out further and not be able to touch the bottom. We will be launching waves in small groups to allow for ease of swimming. Lifeguards will be along the route for safety and support. All 7-10 and 5-6 yr. old groups will be in an area where they can put their feet down to stop if necessary. If your child is nervous over their head, they are welcome to wear a lifejacket. No floaties.
