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.
