_The 2024 Maple Grove Triathlon FRIDAY - Kids Splash and Dash:

A Splash and Dash is a fun and fast-growing sport that combines running and swimming.   The Maple Grove Splash and Dash is a participatory event for kids ages 7-15 with an emphasis on creating a fun family weekend of multisport and fitness.  As an official part of the USA Triathlon Youth Aquathlon Series, our event will be one of more than 55 events occurring across the United States this summer.  Every participant will receive a finisher medal.  Parents are encouraged to cheer on their kids as they move through the course and finish under the same arch as the adult racers.  The race will be held Friday August 26th at 6pm.  Athletes will be staged by age with the oldest going off first.

-:- USAT Sanctioned Event 

Course Information:

The kids will start the swim on the northern most corner of the Weaver Lake swim beach and swim south along the shore until they reach the swim exit.  7-10 year olds will swim 100 meters in shallow water that will allow a swimmer to stand up if needed.  11-15 year olds will swim out a little deeper and complete a 200 meter swim exiting in the same location as the younger kids.  Both courses will have numerous lifeguards in the water and safety personnel on site ensuring a safe and fun swim.

As the swimmers exit, they will enter their own transition area where they can change into their run shoes and hit the trail.  The 7-10 year olds will do one lap of the 1k course, kids 11-15 will do two laps.  The entire run is on the area run paths and volunteers will be on site to ensure runners are going the correct direction.  There will be one aid station as the runners exit transition with water and sports drink.  Runners doing the two lap course will pass the aid station twice. As the kids finish they will be greeted at the finish with medals and refreshments.


100-meter swim | 1-kilometer run
