|USAT YWCO Youth Splash & Dash:-Kids Race|
|Distance: Distances Determined by Age|
The USAT Youth Splash and Dash Aquathlon Series hosts 40 events as part of the nationwide series. We are thrilled to have one of those events right here in Athens, Georgia, hosted by USA Triathlon & the Athens YWCO. The goal of our event is to introduce youth ages 6 to 15 to the world of multisport. This is a beginner-friendly event with a focus on participation. There will no age group awards but we will have special prizes. We will have "swim angels" and lifeguards.Participants will receive t-shirts, finisher medals, and healthy post race snacks from Earth Fare Athens. This event is sanctioned by USA Triathlon and follows the "age up" rule. Participants race they age they are on 12/31/2013 so a 6-year-old who turns 7 in September races as a 7-year-old. The race will consist of an indoor pool swim followed by an age-appropriate run on the grass and trails of the YWCO campus. Ages 6-10 will swim 100 yards and run 1k (.625 miles); Ages 11-15 will swim 200 yards and run 2k (1.25 miles). The cost is $15.00 for USAT Members; $25.00 for Non USAT Members (price includes one day USA Triathlon membership fee).
