Recording your results
You must keep your own records of all your swim details throughout the challenge period and your running total. Record date, swim distance in meters and swim time in hh:mm:ss.
You can use a fitness watch or tracker such as a Garmin or on a fitness app to measure the distance/time of your swim. You may also record your swim details manually; at a swim venue they will likely provide you with information such as course/lane distance or you can estimate it using google maps for outdoor venues. These challenges rely on honesty and we expect all entrants to be honest with their own results.
If you swim at a NOWCA venue such as Race Hub in official sessions then your swim data including the distance, time, temperature of your swim are recorded on your NOWCA profile after each swim. You can retrieve this data by logging in to your personal swim page where a record of your swims can be found. We suggest that you check that your data has been recorded properly after each swim as technical or human errors cannot be corrected.
