USA Triathlon Youth Splash and Dash Aquathlon

May 31, 2014

Blairwood Swim Club, 9300 Blairwood Road, Louisville KY 40222

The Second Annual USA Triathlon Splash & Dash Aquathlon will be held on May 31, 2014 at Blairwood Swim Club. Our USAT Splash and Dash Aquathlon is for youth ages 7 - 15 years (age on December 31, 2014). This swim and run only event is a perfect way for our young people "to get their feet wet" as they learn about Multisport and prepare our more experienced youth for the 2014 summer Youth Triathlon Season.

The Splash & Dash Aquathlon, with a focus on participation, provides our young athletes a way to meet other like-minded young athletes, exposes them to the multisport life, allows them to participate  in a fun, fast moving, safe event and requires no bike or bike equipment. 7 - 10 year olds swim 100 yards and run 1K (0.62 miles) while 11 - 15 year olds swim 200 yards and run 2K (1.24 miles).

Registration through May 24 for the USAT Splash & Dash Aquathlon is $20.00. Late registration, May 25 to 7:00 a.m. race morning, May 31 is $25.00. All Aquathlon participants will be required to have either a 1-day USAT Youth membership ($10.00) or a current Annual Youth USAT membership ($15.00). A link to the USAT Membership page can be found in the registration process and is also on the Youth page of our BarryS Coaching website.
