What is a Splash and Dash?
A Splash and Dash is a fun and fast-growing sport that combines running and swimming. The run can take place on a trail, a road or a path. Similarly, the swim can take place in any body of water – a pool, a reservoir, or an ocean. USA Triathlon’s Splash & Dash Youth Aquathlon Series will feature a swim/run combination. As an athlete progresses and depending on water conditions, a traditional aquathlon may either feature a swim/run or a run/swim/run combination.
- Exposes and educates youth to the multisport lifestyle. It will really help you to “get your feet wet!”
- Engages youth athletes in pre-race and post-race activities such as vendor areas, clinics, and additional educational opportunities.
- Creates an opportunity to meet friends and other youth athletes who are interested and also engage in the multisport lifestyle!
- Less equipment required compared to that of a triathlon since a Splash and Dash (aquathlon) does not require a bike.
