Splash & Dash


Sunday, September 1, 2019 – 8:00 a.m.

THE BASICS: Aquathlon is a fun and fast growing sport that combines swimming and running.  It’s lower cost than a regular triathlon, because there is no expense for a bike.  Splash & Dash events are a treat for the Tallahassee Youth Triathlon Series, as they are organized by USA Triathlon but hosted by us at the FSU Morcom Aquatic Center. 

USAT YOUTH SPLASH AND DASH AQUATHLON SERIES: The USA Triathlon Splash and Dash Aquathlon Series is open to athletes ages 7-15, but here in Tallahassee we open our event to 5- and 6-year olds as well. Each participant receives a goodie bag, swim cap, finisher’s medal, Splash and Dash hat, and invitation to the post-race party.

GET YOUR FEET WET: Our race on September 1st is to focus on the FUN, not competition, so there will be no awards ceremony following this event.  The focus is on PARTICIPATION rather than competition.

Ages 5-6: 25 yd swim (1 pool length)/.25 mile

Ages 7-8:  50 yd swim (2 pool lengths)/.5 mile run

Ages 9-10: 100 yd swim (4 pool lengths)/.5 mile run

Ages 11-12: 150 yd swim (6 pool lengths)/1-mile run

Ages 13-15: 200 yd swim (8 pool lengths)/1-mile run

NOTE: The event is divided into waves, starting with the youngest to oldest.  USAT defines race age as the age you WILL BE on December 31st in the year of the competition. Further explanation can be found under our RACE INFORMATION tab.
