A participant may stand on the bottom or rest by holding an inanimate object such as a buoy, boat, rope or floating object.
A swimmer experiencing difficulty and in need of assistance must raise an arm overhead, pump it up and down, and call or seek assistance.
Swimmers, who have received assistance, whether voluntary or involuntary, must retire and withdraw from the remainder of the race, unless such assistance did not aid the swimmer in making forward progress.
No swimmer shall return to the race if the official rendering assistance requests that the participant withdraws from the race or receive medical assistance.
You’ll receive your race data via email once entries have closed by Wednesday at 2pm before race day.
Your race data consists of your race number, first & last names, your age category, and the event you have entered.
Please check these and if there are any errors, email us as soon as possible (Events@SuperSportsUAE.com) so that we may correct your details, otherwise it may lead to incorrect race results and the wrong swimmer receiving prizes at prize giving.
You can collect your timing chip at Race Check In.
Body markings will be used and applied on the day of the race at Race Check In.
Please make sure you know your race number before you leave home, and then double-check that you have been given the correct number at Race Check In. Writing it on the back of hand before you leave home is a handy trick.
Only our timing chips will be recognized by our timing system. If you are wearing a chip that we did not give you then you will not get any results.
Depending on the race, your timing chip may be part of the race bib, or you may be given a neoprene and velcro band with the chip wear on your ankle.
Please read the race briefing and listen to the briefing on race day too.
This will be supplied by the organisers near the finish line.

When crossing the finish line, keep moving through the finish schute.
Return your timing chip to designated marshal or collection box.
