Participants are entitled to a swimming cap, event shirt, race bib, timing chip and eco bag. Medals and a post-race meal await all finishers.

What follows is a 2.5-kilometer run of two laps around the school grounds for Sprint entries. Full entries will be made to do a five-kilometer run or four laps.

There will be no relay teams. This race is highly recommended for newcomers are making their initial forays into multisport and also to seasoned veterans who wish to have a solid training race while contributing to a worthy charity.

The Adult Night High School provides free education to poor but deserving students. The DLSZ swimming team is hoping to make a splash in the coming 78th UAAP Juniors and other meets.
