Dip & Dash Swim-Run and Team Challenge

Sunday June 28th, 2020

Official Website


The Dip  & Dash Aquathlon is a swim - run event.  Think triathlon without the bike!  There are three individual distances for the event and a team challenge category for teams of 3.  The three individual distances are:  350m swim and 2k run (1.25 miles), 750m swim and 4 mile run, or 1500m swim and 4 mile run.  Based on feedback from last year, the team challenge will be re-structured for 2020 - Each distance will have an optional team component where teams can compete against each other for the fastest overall team times.  Unlike last year's mixed team format, ALL team members will start together for each distance and the team with the shortest cumulative time will win.  For example a group, family, or club can create one or more "teams" who would compete for the lowest overall score.  We will do an award in each distance for the fastest all male and female teams and one for the fastest mixed team.  The catch is that you have to create your team and declare that team at the time of registration, or prior to the race.  No fair deciding on race morning to join a "team" because you've sized up the competition.  So choose your teams for fun or competition.   All team members do the same distance event (this eliminates the having to tag off like last year, and keeps all the swimmers in a group rather than one or two swimmers alone in the water). During registration you will be given the option of creating a team, giving it a name, etc.  Just log on as a normal registration, select your preferred distance, create your team and proceed to registration.
