What is a Splash & 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.

What is the concept?

The USA Triathlon Splash & Dash Youth Aquathlon Series will be returning for its third year and  is open to athletes ages 7-15. There will be forty five (45) events in total with events in each of the ten (10) USA Triathlon regions. 

The focus is on PARTICIPATION rather than competition. The series will expose youth participants to USA Triathlon and the exciting world of multisport! Timing will not be required at each event, although it is acceptable. All events within the series will be USA Triathlon sanctioned.

Why Participate?

  • Exposes and educates youth to the multisport lifestyle, all while being involved in a fun, exciting, and safe atmosphere! 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.

Can I Participate?

Absolutely! If you are in between the ages of 7-15 and have a USA Triathlon annual youth membership, you are eligible to take part in the fun and exciting multisport series! Be prepared for a great experience, bring a positive attitude, and be ready to learn firsthand about multisport!
