The USAT Splash and Dash will be held on June 28, 2014 and is a partnership between Endorphin Fitness, Peluso Open Water, and Collegiate School Aquatics Center (CSAC) to provide kids age 7-19 a safe, fun introduction to multisport. This race includes a short swim, followed immediately by a short run to the finish line. 


USAT National Series - The Richmond Splash & Dash is part of a national USA Triathlon Series. 
More on the series can be found at http://www.usatriathlon.org/events/youth-aquathlon-series.aspx

Anyone Can Participate - Without the biggest barrier to entry in multsport, the bike, Splash and Dash offers kids a chance to race in a multisport format without the added experience and expense that biking requires.  Therefore, any kid who knows how to swim can therefore enjoy this awesome race experience. 

Race Distances - All Splash and Dash events in the series have the following race distances:


Ages 7-8

Ages 9-10

Ages 11-12

Ages 13-19











* Unlike other USAT Events, the age of the athlete on race day is the age they should register.

Course Details - The swim will be held in a 22-lane pool which was used in the 2008 Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, where world records were set.  Although in a pool for safety reasons, the course will be set up as an open water format with buoys but done in a pool to reinforce safety.  The run will be held on the surrounding fields on the CSAC property and be free from traffic.
