The MAC Dash is turning six this year! The sixth annual event will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2013. This year's event includes a sprint triathlon and the kid's Mini MAC Dash. All events will be centered at the beautiful Madras Aquatic Center in Madras, Oregon. This is a volunteer-organized community event whose proceeds benefit the Madras Aquatic Centers youth programming.
Triathlon - The MAC Dash sprint triathlon is a fun, high-quality, pool-based event. This race consists of a 500-yard swim, a 12-mile road bike and a 3-mile run. Both individual and team competitors are welcome.
Mini MAC Dash - The Mini MAC Dash is open to children 10 years and younger. THIS EVENT IS FREE!! The focus of the event is participation, not competition. This untimed event is a great way to introduce young children to triathlons and encourage physical activity. The Mini MAC Dash includes swim, bike and run legs. There are short course and long course options for the swim and bike (approxomate distances).
SWIM: Short Course - 2 widths of the lap pool
Long Course - 6 widths of the lap pool
BIKE: Short Course - 1/3 mile (relatively flat)
Long Course - 1 mile (with some fun hills)
RUN: Both Courses -1/4 mile
Children may mix-n-match these varying courses to create the race that best suits them. Flotation devices, training wheels and adult assistance are all welcome. All participants must wear a helmet while biking. Registration for the Mini MAC Dash is now open and will close at approximately one hour before the race begins. The event will begin as the adult triathlon ends, approximately 11:30AM. Every participant will receive a shirt, goody-bag and a medal.
Allowing the Mini MAC Dash to be free keeps it open to all children who want to participate. However, the popularity of this event has impacted the budget of the overall MAC Dash. If your family is able, a $10 donation would be greatly appreciated to off-set the costs. Donations will be accepted during packet pick-up.
