Adaptive Splash & Dash

The ADAPTIVE SPLASH & DASH race provides athletes of all abilities who may not have a bike or do not feel comfortable on a bike in a competition setting the opportunity to participate in the event. 

The ADAPTIVE SPLAH & DASH is limited to 50 participants. Once we have reached the maximum number of participants, no additional participants will be allowed to register. 



To be eligible for the Paratriathlon division, a participant must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be between 6 and 17 years old as of the event date. 
  • Must meet one or more of the following disability categories as defined by USA Triathlon:
    • PTWC - Handcycle: parapelgic, quadripelegic, polio, double amputee
    • PT2 - Severe Leg Impairment: above-knee amputees
    • PT3 - Les Autres: includes athletes with Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, double leg amputee or paralysis in multiple limbs
    • PT4 - Arm Impairment: including above and below elbow amputees or impairment in one or both upper limbs
    • PT5 - Moderate Leg Impairment: below-knee amputees
    • PTVI - Visual Impairment: legally blind
  • Must be able to complete the prescribed course, described below, without assistance with the exception of in the transition area. PTVI athletes may have a tethered Guide who is also registered for the event. If your athlete is qualified as PTVI, please reach out for additional details. 

Parents of Adaptive Splash & Dash participants who need assistance in transition MUST be registered as event volunteers to gain access to the transition area during the event. A volunteer position has been created for this dedicated purpose. We will have crew and volunteers available to assist athletes but one-on-one assistance will not be provided by the race crew.



The ADAPTIVE SPLASH & DASH will only be offered at the Sunday event this year. See the SCHEDULE OF EVENTS page for additional details. 



The ADAPTIVE SPLASH & DASH course will follow the same route as the Paratriathlon minus the bike, i.e. a 125-meter swim and a 1-mile run. Athletes will use the same start line, transition, and finish line as the triathlon. See the COURSE page for additional details. 

PLEASE NOTE :: A portion of the run course is on loose gravel. We work to make every accommodation possible and will work with you and your triathlete. If you think this may be an issue for your triathlete please reach out by completing the CONTACT FORM.



All finishers will receive a finisher's medal at the finish line.
