In partnership with our friends at the Guntersville Recreation Center in Guntersville, Alabama, we are excited to host a youth splash & dash in association with our Mountain Lakes Triathlon. On the evening of Friday, August 3rd we invite kids age 7-15 to participate in a USA Triathlon Splash & Dash National Series event.
The swim takes place in the beautiful outdoor pool and the run takes place on a lakeside greenway.
05:30 PM - Swim 100 meters | Run 1 km
06:00 PM - Swim 200 meters | Run 2 km
The race staging is at the Guntersvile Recreation Center outdoor pool. The swim takes place in the 7 lane x 25 yard pool. Swimmers start by age and go down and back in the same lane, 2 swimmers per lane. Age 7-10 will complete 100 total yards (4 lengths or 2 laps) and Age 11-15 complete 200 total yards (8 lengths or 4 laps.) Swimmers will have their shoes and any desired clothing & accessories staged in a "swim to run transition zone" on the pool deck. They will exit the pool and immediately grab their shoes and any other items needed for the run, then proceed out of the pool area to the lakeside greenway after a short run across the grass from the pool behind the Guntersville Senior Center. The run is out and back on the trail, with runners staying left throughout the run. Race finish is on the "lake side" of the trail. Age 7-10 complete a 1k run while Age 11-15 complete a 2k run.
