A Splash and Dash is a fun and fast-growing sport that combines running and swimming. The Athens YWCO and Dream Team Triathlon are proud to partner with USA Triathlon as part of their Youth Splash and Dash Aquathlon Series. Only 40 of these events are offered through USAT and one of them is right here in Athens, Georgia!
The focus of the Splash and Dash is on participation rather than competition so there are no age group awards and no event times. Our focus is to expose kids to USA Triathlon and the exciting world of multisport and are offering a begginer-friendly event. The event will be USA Triathlon sanctioned. The Splash and Dash Youth participants will each receive a t-shirt, a finishers medal and healthy post-race snacks from Earth Fare Athens after finishing their race.
- Ages 7-10 years will swim 100 yards and run 1k (.62 miles)
