Gregg Dedic with Doc Lucky. Gregg is the CDD record holder for the Golden Mile®

Special Olympics Division

This specialized division is open to individuals that have previously competed in swimming (or triathlon) in Special Olympics.  The top three finishers will receive awards for the men’s and women’s division.  There are no age groups in the Special Olympics division and there will be no Special Olympics “divisioning”. Swimmers in this division also are eligible to receive awards in their respective non-Special Olympics age group divisions should they place in the top three. 

All Special Olympics swimmers must have a Unified Partner and wear a safe swimmer buoy unless approved by the event director before the date of the event. Approval will be based on the swimmer’s past open water swimming performance, as well as Special Olympics Florida lake swim rules and regulations. The Unified Partner does not have to pay to register for the race, but they are not eligible for awards and swag.  We do try to find Unified Partners for the Special Olympics swimmers that do not have one who can attend the race. The earlier you confirm you are swimming, the better the chance we will be able to assist in getting you a Unified Partner. The Unified Partner must register for the event, but unless they pay to register, they will not receive a goody bag or be eligible for awards. The Unified Partner must wear a safe swimmer buoy and demonstrate the necessary swimming skills to be a Special Olympics Unified Partner.

These clearances must be done before the race date. If you are planning on registering as a Special Olympics swimmer, please contact Lucky Meisenheimer for your  registration code.
