This Weekend: 2018 Splash and Dash for Youth

The inaugural 2018 Reston Youth Splash and Dash will take place this Sunday at 8:30 a.m. As of today, registration is completely sold out and local musician Ted Graber will provide entertainment during the event.

Proceeds from the event will benefit underserved youth. Children who are six-year-olds will swim 50 meters and run 1K; seven-to-ten-year-olds will swim 100 meters and run 1K; 11-to-15-year-olds will swim 150 meters and run 2K.

The pool swim will take place at the Lake Audubon pool and the run course will take place on a nearby section of pathways. The focus of the event is participation, not competition, according to organizers.

All participants will receive a medal and T-shirt. Athletes can also enjoy snow cones provided by KONA Ice, yogurt with toppings by honeygrow and snack by BARE Snacks. Volunteers will also be dressed like superheroes.

The event is sanctioned by USA Triathlon in possible with a partnership with Reston Association and the CORE Foundation.
