Kids Impacted

Swim Teams Participating

The RVA Splash and Dash Series is a 4-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 short swim followed by a short run with the last race of the series also including a parent-child relay! Participants compete in each race to win series awards.



What’s Splash & Dash?

About Splash & Dash – Splash & Dash is a USA Triathlon national series that provides a fun, safe introduction to multisport. Without the biggest barrier to entry in multsport: the bike.  All ages 17 and under encouraged to participate.

The Series – The RVA Splash & Dash Series is a series of 4 races of the same swim-run distance at varying locations.  Individuals as well as local swim teams compete in each race for both individual and club series awards.

Adult/Child Relay – The final race of the series includes a short parent/child relay with both adult and child completing a 50-meter swim followed by a 400-meter run.  This is a fun finale to the series and free to any participant who races the Hallsley event.  Got multiple kids?  No problem as you can tag all your kids which will in essence create multiple teams that you are on.

A Great Cause – These events benefit both the Live Red Foundation and the Cameron K Gallagher (Speak Up) Foundation, which is a beacon of hope for those who are affected by teenage mental illness.

Supports Local Swim Teams – This event also helps fund local swim teams by making a donation to those who participate.

The Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation (CKG) provides tools that cultivate awareness and understanding of teenage depression and anxiety.  One teen out of every four suffers from mental illness, yet less than 33% get help. Together, we can change that. In 2017, CKG provided free programs about mental health, stress management and coping strategies to more than 17,500 students and their supporters in over 19 schools in the greater Richmond area. Additionally, over 2,000 teens and adults benefited from CKG mindfulness programs. CKG hosts SpeakUp5k races in Richmond, Tampa, San Diego and Nashville as a way to bring communities together in a positive and energetic way to start the conversation about prioritizing mental health. Help begins when we SpeakUp!
