Starting immediately, Masters swimmers may set Oregon Pentathlon records in any sanctioned one-day swim meet.
There are still quite a number of unclaimed records, and some soft records, in all 3 courses (SCY, SCM, LCM). So think about these options in choosing your swim events in your next one-day swim meet. Records are maintained for every 5-year age group, for each gender, for all 3 courses, and for 3 different distances (Long, Mid, Sprint, detailed below).
A swimming Pentathlon is defined as the total time for 5 swim events. The same distance for all four individual strokes, plus an Individual Medley.
- Long Distance = 200 yard / meter event of each stroke, plus the 400 IM
- Mid Distance = 100 yard / meter event of each stroke, plus the 200 IM
- Sprint Distance = 50 yard / meter event of each stroke, plus the 100 IM*
*for the LCM Sprint Distance, there is no 100 IM, so substitute the 200 IM
