The RVA Splash and Dash Series is a race series held in partnership with USA Triathlon.  The mission is to provide kids a safe, fun introduction to multisport. The Avalon race includes a 100 m swim followed by a 1 mi run.  Those who race will also have the opportunity to do a fun parent-child relay after the race also.  All LRF events fund our free fitness programs which teach life skills to low-opportunity communities.
