Minnesota Regional Championship (MRCs)(Team Hosted)
(this is a team hosted event)
This is a 2 ½ day meet to provide a scored season ending championship for swimmers with verifiable times equal to or faster than the "B" standard but slower than the "CH" standard, regardless of course. All new “CH” times achieved and each individual event winner in events 1000 yd/800 m in length and longer, regardless of finish time, advance to the state meet. In events 500 yd/400 m in length and shorter the highest placing athlete not achieving the championship time standard in their age group and gender by event advances to the state meet. That means, “Win it and swim it!”
