How it Works:
100 yard swim in shallow water (kids can touch down), then run to the transition zone to put on shirt and shoes, then do the 1 mile run course with obstacles (including super foam soaker and slip & slide). Includes race shirt, personalized name bib, and beautiful artisan crafted finisher’s medals.
Who should race the Splash & Dash?
Kids ages 4-6 racing side-by-side with a registered teen or adult racing partner
Kids ages 7-17 may choose to race solo or with a sibling, friend or adult racing partner
Registered adults may race with a child age 4-17
SATURDAY: BreakAway Kids Tri
Saturday, August 20 at 9 a.m.
How it Works:
100 yard swim in shallow water (kids can touch down), then run to your bike in the transition zone (T-Zone) to put on shirt, shoes and helmet, then ride the 5-mile course in the park and return to your spot in the T-Zone, park bike, leave helmet and run our 1-mile course with obstacles. Includes custom race shirt, personalized name bib, and beautiful artisan crafted finisher’s medals.
Important: If your child is under age 7, or is still riding training wheels, or not yet ready to ride 5-miles without an adult, please choose the Splash & Dash instead.
