As an acknowledgement of pandemic effects continuing into 2021, a USMS member may earn an ePostal Series Challenge recognition patch by successfully completing three or more of the five 2021 ePostal events (1-Hour, 5K, 10K, 3000-yard, 6000-yard).

All-Star Recognition

The Long Distance Committee will be naming a Long Distance All Star team in 2021. To be considered for this recognition, a USMS member needs to complete a minimum of three Long Distance National Championship events in 2021: one ePostal National Championship, one Open Water National Championship (OWNC) and one additional event that may be either an ePostal or OWNC.
