Hudson Valley, NY Splash & Dash
What is Splash & Dash? Splash & Dash is a fun and fast-growing sport that combines running and swimming and is open to youth athletes ages 7-15. There will be over 60 Splash & Dash events sanctioned by USA Triathlon in the United States this year.
Athletes are separated into two divisions:
- Ages 7-10 will swim 100 meters and run 1 kilometer
- Ages 11-15 will swim 200 meters and run 2 kilometers.
The swim will take place in the protected and shallow waters of Williams Lake and the run is an out-n-back on the adjacent Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. There will be plenty of lifeguards during the swim and plenty of course marshals monitoring the run. The entire race is off-road to ensure that the athletes are safe.
Young athletes will have an experience just like the pros as they sprint to the finish line. All finishers will receive a finisher medal and winners will receive a framed award.
