SPLASH & DASH

SPLASH & DASH

JULY 13, 8:AM

Once again this summer Kanawha is hosting one of the Splash & Dash events. There is a series of 4 Splash & Dash events, held at 4 different pools. The June 22 event was at Hallsley, the June 29 event will be at Avalon, the July 13 event will be at Kanawha, and the July 20 event will be at Burkwood. A Splash and Dash is an aquathlon, or an event that combines swimming and running. Each child will swim 100 meters and then run 1 mile. The run will start as the racers exit the pool area and end in the Kanawha field. They will run in the area very close to Kanawha. These events are open to children age 17 and younger. They do not have to be members of the swim team. Kanawha members are also invited to compete in other events in the series.

Splash and Dash is sponsored by Endorphin Fitness and the Live Red Foundation. For more information and to register, please go to www.bit.ly/rvasplashdash. It will be an exciting morning of competition and a good chance for children to try a multi-sport event.
