We’ve created courses that are focused on a racer’s individual ability, so there’s something for everyone including our youngest racers! A Splash & Dash is participatory and not timed, so it’s about experiencing multisport in a fun and safe way!

NOTE: Run distances will slightly vary by race venue.
- Purple Buddy Course Requirements – Wingmen ages 16 or older, are REQUIRED to accompany their racer in the pool or walk on the pool deck alongside their racer during the swim, and walk/run alongside them on the run course. Crossing the finish line together is optional – some kidz just might want to do that on their own! Sorry mom and dad…it does happen! Swim aids (Coast Guard approved puddle jumpers or swim vests), are permitted. No intertubes, “floaties”, etc.. NOTE: Racers must be fully potty trained to participate—no pull ups or water-pants.
- Course Requirements – Racers must be able to complete the entire course on their own. Wingmen support on these courses is not permitted and parents will not be permitted on the pool deck and may not walk/run next to their racer at any time. Swim aids (Coast Guard approved puddle jumpers or swim vests), are permitted. No intertubes, “floaties”, etc.
- Parent Support – One parent is permitted to help each racer setup their transition area race morning. If your racer requires support in transition during the event, please let us know race morning. Remember, some kidz can do this all on their own and want to, so we want to be supportive and encourage them to be independent.
