When: Saturday, August 9, 2014
This year we're offering the traditional Splash n' Dash (300 yard swim and 5k). You can participate either solo, or as a 2-person relay team:
We're also offering a Dash (5k) only option. It will immediately follow the duathlon. You can just dash or Double Dash - complete the duathlon, then head back out for another 5k !
Dynamite Endurance Events is also offering additional discounts if you register for Hit the Brixx 5k and 10k in October! The Hit the Brixx 5k and 10k are also offered back to back, so you could do all three races for just $20 more!
Online registration closes on August 14, 2013 at Midnight. T shirts guaranteed for those registered by August 1.
Participants will start with a 300 yard pool swim in 6 lanes. Participants snake their way across the 25 yard pool, going up and back in each lane. Lane changes are only made at one end of the pool. It is VERY important to submit an accurate 100 yard swim time when registering, this is required for registration. By submitting an accurate swim time you will seed yourself correctly and make the swim leg more enjoyable for you and everyone around you. Participants will go off every 15 seconds in order of submitted 100 yard seed times. Swim caps are not provided for pool swim. If you would like to wear a swim cap, then be sure to bring your own.
Pool Swim Etiquette
If a person is "tailgating" on you in the pool, proper etiquette is for you to stop at the wall and allow the person behind you to pass. As with running (and cycling and driving), slower traffic should stay to the right and passing should be done on the left. There is potential for "traffic jams" if many people are passing at the same time, but issues such as this can be reduced or prevented by submitting an accurate 100 yard swim seed time.
Participants will experience lightning fast transition times on this course as the swim exit and run start are 50 yards apart-separated only by the transition area. The 5k run will be mostly on a wooded trail with only 1 mile on the paved Greenway in the middle of the course loop. The entire course is traffic- free and friendly for runners with little to no trail experience.
