Why do I have to race in the swim cap I was given?

Everyone must wear a swim cap for safety reasons. A swimmer is easier to see in the water if they're wearing a swim cap. All athletes who start in the same wave will have the same color cap on, which provides race management with an easy visual indicator to help keep a closer count on athletes exiting the water by age group. You must wear the swim cap you were provided at Packet Pickup.
