Unfortunately due to both the weather conditions and a lack of sponsorship it is highly likely we will not be able to hold this event for the 2014-2015 season. If we do get the funding allowing us to run the summer series we will make an announcment confirming dates.

The Splash N Dash summer series will be held over 6 events on the following dates: 27 November, 11 December, 8 January, 29 January, 12 February, 26 February. If any event is cancelled the new date will be added in March. Both the 500 metre and the 1000 metre events are Open, there are no age group categories. The short distance event is 500metre swim and 2 km run, the Long distance course is 1000metre swim and a 4km run. If you change events, on the night, after registering you will be allocated a DNF placing.
