Family Splash and Dash

Triathlon Ireland and Waterways Ireland are bringing an exciting new format of swim-run sport for adults and kids to locations around the country this summer.

The Waterways Ireland Splash and Dash Series will see kids and adults participate together on the same team in an exciting non-competitive event.

The aim is to break down the barriers of participation and allow adults be positive sporting role models for their kids.


Events

Three events will take place as part of the Waterways Ireland Splash and Dash Series in 2019:

River Barrow, Athy, July 14th ENTER
Spencer Dock, Dublin, July 28th ENTER
River Erne, Enniskillen, August 11th ENTER

The events, which are organised by Triathlon Ireland and local triathlon clubs Athy TC, Activ Multisport and Cuilcagh TC; are supported by Waterways Ireland and will help highlight Ireland's waterways as places for family activities such as walking, cycling and running.

Fun Relay Format

The format for the race sees adults and kids participate on the same team in a swim-run event.

The kids start off with a circa 200m swim followed by an 800m run. They then tag their adult team mate who will swim 500m before running 1.5km. The adult is then joined by kids before they both cross the finish line together.

The events are non-competitive and adults and kids of all ages can participate.

Best of all, entry is free!
