A Splash and Dash is a fun and fast-growing sport that combines running and swimming. Boundary Waters and the Peak Racing Team is proud to partner with the USA Triathlon Youth Splash and Dash Aquathlon Series and take part in only one of 40 unique events nationwide.
In addition to the Youth Splash and Dash, we will have a 5k that is open to all ages from youth to adult!
The focus of the Splash and Dash is on PARTICIPATION rather than competition. The series will expose youth participants to USA Triathlon and the exciting world of multisport! The event will be timed and USA Triathlon sanctioned. The Splash and Dash Youth participants will each receive a t-shirt, a finishers medal and treats after finishing their race.
*We plan to have a bouncy house, games, and other fun activities for the entire family as well.*
The Splash and Dash is for youth ages 7-15 years of age and the 5k is open to all ages!
The 7-10 years old swim 100 yards and run 1k, or 0.62 miles.
The 11-15 year olds will swim 200 yards and run 2k, or 1.24 miles.
Awards: Top 3 Male and Female overall (5k), and in each of the following age groups: 6 and under (5k), 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64; 65 and over.
We will also have a special award for the youngest participant of the day and oldest, or "Young at Heart" award.
If a youth decides to participate in both the 5k and Splash and Dash, we will have a very special "SuperKid" award just for your child.
Both races will be the FIRST to run on the new Chattahoochee Hills Greenway Trail that starts at the Aquatic Center. The run portion of the youth race will take place entirely on this trail as an out and back while the 5k will run approximately a half mile on the Greenway Trail and the remainder of the race on the dirt trails.
