This is a super fun, kids only, SwimRun race series at Service High School. Kids will decide if they want to swim in the shorter “Sea Otters” race or the longer “Puffins” race. The Puffins race is a 50meters, 1 lap (down & back = 1 lap) swim, followed by a transition in the parking lot to a .75mile run, 3 lap, on the high school track. Life jackets are welcome! The Sea Otters will complete a 300yard, 6 lap swim, transitioning in the parking lot to a 6 lap run on the track, 1.5miles total. After the race we will have super fancy finishers medals, and post race snacks for all finishers. Every kid that signs up by June 1st will receive a race t-shirt, swag bag, and a custom race bib! Shirt sizing for those that signup late will be limited to first to sign up, first served. Top 3 Overall Boys/Girls in each age group in the splash n dash series will win a custom race towel at the awards party. We will post series rankings after every race. Awards party, FREE family fun run & root beer social is August 1st, 2023 at Ray Stork Park @ 6pm, all are welcome!
*NEW THIS YEAR* Our Kid’s Dash is for those that just want to run! Our dash will happen at the same location and on the same run course as the Splash n’ Dash, starting runners from a line near the exit to the transition area to allow for all kids to have the same run experience and comparable run times to their friends. Dash racers will have the choice to run 3 laps or 6laps, .75miles or 1.5miles. Dash racers will start at 3 wave start times, 6pm, 6:30, or 7pm. We will start the first dash runner at the same time the first Splash n’ Dash swim wave begins. Top 3 Overall Boys/Girls in each age group in the dash series will win custom race elastic laces at the awards party. We will post series rankings after every race. Awards party, FREE family fun run & root beer social is August 1st, 2023 at Ray Stork Park @ 6pm, all are welcome!
The virtual race is a 1.5 fun run wherever you’d like to run! No swimming is included in the virtual race to allow flexibility! You’ll complete the run then return to Runsignup to submit your results on the leaderboard. Racers can participate in the in-person race AND virtual race, if they want. Virtual racers will be mailed the same race swag in-person racers receive. Unfortunately, we are not able to award virtual placings since results are unable to be confirmed but we still welcome you to join our awards party, FREE family fun run & root beer social is August 1st, 2023 at Ray Stork Park @ 6pm, all are welcome!
