800m and 1500m freestyle events are HDW. Fastest heat will be swum in the finals session.
Selected events have a separate qualifying standard for swimmers with a recognised classification (WPS, BS, BBS, UKSA, or INAS-FID) which must be held on the Scottish Swimming, British Swimming or WPS Database/Masterlist at time of entry. Swimmers must have achieved the qualifying standard or consideration time for their class in each MC event in an accredited meet in 2019, which must be verifiable. Please submit a proof of times report with entries.
The MC events will be integrated into the heats, seeded by absolute time. MC swimmers can compete in the Open, B or junior finals, where appropriate, based on time. There will be no separate MC finals.
