A new addition to the MS Swimathon is the HOURS OF POWER competition where teams give maximum effort to swim as many laps as they can during two 1 hour periods.

The following rules apply only for the Hours of Power:

  1. The Hours of Power will be held at 9am and 3pm (or 10pm and 6am for overnight swims).
  2. Teams are encouraged to swim as many laps as they can in these two 1 hour periods, with the winner being the team that swims the most combined laps.
  3. Team captains must nominate a maximum of 8 swimmers to participate in each of these periods.
  4. Swimmers may dive into the pool from each end (relay style) noting individual pool rules at shallow ends.
  5. Swimmers cannot use floatation devices during the Hours of Power (unless otherwise allowed by the Swimathon director – eg, in case of disability, swimming ability, age, etc).
