Each swimmer has an incentive to fundraise - however there is no requirement to fundraise - and earn a package to waive their registration fee and earn triathlon and open water swimming gear, including wet suits, on course goggles and transition bags. (On Course goggles are not yet available in stores, are approved by USAT and use electronic compass technology to keep the swimmer on course.) EARN COOL SWIMMING GEAR HERE!
