Can I pick up my wife / husband / cousin / friend / child / neighbors / relay member’s packet?
No, per USAT rules the athlete racing must be present with their form of ID in order to pick up their packet.
But, I already signed a waiver online… Do I have to fill out another?
Everyone will be required to fill out a (yes, with a pen/pencil) HRCA waiver form. Well, that’s not exactly true, the personal information can be typed, but the signature will need to be “Old School”.
How can I be in the first wave of fastest swimmers? I have to be at my kids (fill in your kids sport here) game / Mom’s house / work…

Will there be a place to change in the transition area?
