These will be the projects or what OCN wanted?

Basically you adjust the settings to download enough work for the 5 days, and then turn off communications between the client and project server. Some projects will only download a certain amount of work, in which case you can change the upload URL and disable it that way while still getting work. Then when the event starts you have a bunch of completed work to upload. Since there is no QRB like folding, you don't lose anything as long as you are ahead of the deadline.
We do not know the actual projects, yet, only the organizers do at this point. We don't know the start date for anything but the marathon that runs all 14 days. But the projects get announced 5 days in advance, 3 days for the sprint.
The BOINC Pentathlon consists of 5 separate "disciplines".
- Marathon (CPU, 14 days)
- Sprint (GPU or CPU, 3 days)
- City Run (CPU, 5 days)
- Cross Country (GPU or CPU, 5 days)
- Swimming (CPU, 7 days)
