Kids Impacted

Swim Teams Participating

The RVA Splash and Dash Series is a 3-race series held in partnership with local swim teams.  The mission is to provide kids a safe, fun introduction to multisport. Each race includes a 100 m swim followed by a 1 mi run.  These events fund our free fitness programs which teach life skills to underserved communities and also benefit the local swim teams with which we partner.

COVID Updates

Unfortunately, two of our venues were not able to host us this year due to COVID.  Despite this, we have two new events we are adding to the calendar and are excited to share with you.

  • July 18 Splash & Dash Avalon Round 2 – We will host a 2nd race at our most popular venue, Avalon Recreation Association – 510 Heathfield Rd, on July 18. Participants will race a 100 meter swim followed by a 1 mile run with plenty of volunteer support along the way.
  • August 9 West Creek Duathlon – Our 3rd event of the series will depart from the traditional swim-run format and utilize bike-run instead. We will offer 3 age-appropriate race distances on a private course with no vehicular traffic:
    • Age 13-17: 0.5 mi Run, 5.6 mi Bike, 1.5 mi Run
    • Age 9-12: 0.25 mi Run, 2.8 mi Bike, 1 mi Run
    • Age 8 & Under: .25 mi Run, 1.4 mi Bike, 0.5 m Run

COVID Precautions

The following modifications have been made to allow you to race while putting safety first:
  • We are limiting our field size to keep race fields small.
  • Social distancing will be practiced at the event including at the race start, on the course, in transition, and pre/post race.
  • Spectators are encouraged to wear masks.
  • We are eliminating all contact with others through self-body marking instructions, no formal packet pick up, and awards will be mailed.
  • Athletes will arrive at a specific time, race, and then leave the venue.
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms over the past 2 weeks, you are not allowed to race. We will happily offer you a refund.
