**6/22/2021 - Hi Families,
Our Splash n' Dash series starts back up next Tuesday! Race #1 registration is OPEN, taking place at Service High. Our race distance has been shortened from 100m to 50m swim, followed by a .75mile run, to allow for kids to feel successful after a long duration without pool time over the past year for most families. There is still the 300m swim - 1.5mile run option for those feeling the bigger challenge. Swimmers will line up outside to wait their turn. Their swim time will start when they enter the pool doors and end when they exit the transition area. The transition time will be included in swim times. 

COVID Changes
Families are welcome in the pool area with a mask on. Masks are not required for racers while racing. Masks are not required while outside while you are social distancing. If you are not vaccinated, we ask that you wear a mask at all times to protect our children that are unable to get vaccinated yet.  

Please sign up now! Registration closes Monday, June 28th at 7:59pm. 

Race #2 & 3 is TBD! We're working on permitted for Sunday, July 11th & July 25th, 5:30-7pm at Dimond High Pool as weeknight evenings are no an option. We learned last week that Service High Pool is closed for the month of July, so we are quickly trying to come up with a new game plan for kids to continue racing this Summer, stay tuned!

Race Director

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 on Randy's Loop, a dirt trail behind the high school. The Sea Otters will complete a 300yard, 6 lap swim, transitioning in the parking lot to a 2 lap run on Randy's Loop, 1.5miles total. After the race we will have super fancy finishers medals, and post race snacks for all finishers. Kids will also receive a swag bag, a custom race bib! Be one of the first 50 racers to sign up for all 3 races and your child will also receive a Splash n' Dash tank top. Tank top sizing is limited and first to sign up, first served. 

The virtual race is a 1.5 fun run wherever you'd like to run! 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 Splash n' Dash medal, a race bib and some fun swag. Participate in all 3 races and get one of the Splash n' Dash tank tops too! These tank tops are limited to the first 50 racers total and they are first to sign up, first served basis. 

Sign your child up for 3 events (this could be a mix of virtual & in-person) and you'll get $10 off at checkout PLUS first 50 will receive a race tank top!
