Rolling Swim Start
                            Rolling swim start at the Legends Triathlon
     What is a rolling swim start? Swimmers decide "when" they want to start the race instead of going together as a group (traditional wave start).  An athlete’s race time will begin when they go over the timing mat before entering the water. The Championship "longer course" goes first then is followed by the Express "shorter course".
     The improvements to this format is that faster swimmers go in earlier avoiding navigating through the slower swimmers and make it more enjoyable for all swimmers. 
     Find a buddy or make a friend: One bonus of a rolling start is that you can choose to "start" the race with your buddy (male or female) and compete directly with each other. What could be a more fun way to do a Triathlon?
