The Planet Adventure Swimming Series (PASS), organized by Dick Sidner, is a three-race series held in Noblesville in central Indiana, USA. The events include the PASS 1K/2K held on May 26th in Morse Park & Beach, the PASS 5K that is run in conjunction with the 5K U.S. Masters Swimming National Championships on June 23th in South Harbour Club House Beach, and the PASS 2K/4K on August 26th in Morse Park & Beach.
Swimmers must be annual members of U.S. Masters Swimming or they can purchase a one-day license from USMS for an additional US$15. Plaques will be given to the top 3 overall male and female finishers and medals to the first-place finishers in each age group, both male and female.
For the first race, the PASS 1K/2K, the water temperature is expected to be cold and wetsuits are legal in a separate division. For the second race, the PASS 5K course is a 5K loop marked with 16 buoys with the water expected to be near 78°F (+/-5°F). The third race, the PASS 2K/4K, is held on a triangular 1K course where two or four laps will complete the race.
