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.
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.
The Splash and Dash is for youth ages 7-15 years of age*.
*Note: USAT Rules indicate that we utilize the "age up" rule for all youth. For instance, if your 6 year old will be turning 7 by 12/31/14, he or she is considered 7 for our event. Or, if your 10 year old will be turning 11 by 12/31/14, he or she will age up to 11, thus moving to the next classification of racing. Please see below for race distances.
- Ages 7-10 years will swim 100 yards and run 1k, or 0.62 miles
- Ages 11-15 years will swim 200 yards and run 2k, or 1.24 miles
Awards: Top 3 Male and Female in each of the following age groups 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-15
This race will utilize the 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.
