WHAT: The SPLASH ‘n DASH ‘n SMILE is a swimming and running “aquathlon” (say that five times real fast) competition for kids ages 7 to 15 years old. The event follows USAT’s official aquathlon competition guidelines. Participants swim a pre-determined distance, then transition from pool to running trail to finish the race on foot. Proceeds benefit The LV Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to buoyancy on water, and in life.

WHEN: Saturday, September 22, 2018, Race starts @ 8:00 am
