Key Event Dates

  • Entries open: 15 March - 1 April
  • Race submission window: 8-19 April
  • Facebook and YouTube Live stream event: 1 May

Building on the success of the inaugural competition, Lebara’s Race The World will once again use a ‘virtual racing points system’ to create a level playing field across the multi-classification racing format, whilst key revisions include a switch to long course and an adaptation to the events on offer, as the online meet looks to provide an alternative and broad set of competition opportunities across the series progression.

The event programme will now include the 150m Individual Medley and 200m Individual Medley disciplines, with the four 100m strokes (freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke) remaining on the schedule. Submissions will be subjected to race analysis and officiating checks, with results revealed in a live stream event on 1 May that showcases the top eight point-scoring athletes from each race in full in a series of virtual finals.

Prizes will be awarded to both the top 3 point scoring swimmers in the following categories (further information in entry pack):

  • 100m Female
  • 100m Male
  • 150m and 200m Individual Medley Female
  • 150m and 200m Individual Medley Male
