Calling all recent graduates and collegiate triathletes! The DC Triathlon Club is holding a collegiate Splash & Dash on Sunday, November 22 at Catholic University. This outreach event is funded through a USAT grant; registration is FREE to non DC Tri members and top event finishers in this category will receive a one-year USAT membership to continue racing and stay engaged in the triathlon community.
DC Tri Club members are invited to register for a nominal fee of $10. While members will not be elligible for one-year USAT memberships, we will have other prizes for our top finishers.
Logistics: The event will take place at the Raymond A. DuFour Athletic Center at Catholic University (Address: 3606 John McCormack Drive, NE, Washington, DC 20064). There is a parking lot adjacent to the center, and Catholic University is a short walk from the Brookland-CUA metrorail station on the red line. The swim will take place in the pool inside the athletic center and the run will be held on the track adjacent to center complex. The entire course will be closed to vehicle traffic.
Splash & Dash: Participants will swim approximately 300 yards in the pool, exit the pool area and run outside to the transition area. In the transition area, athletes can towel off quickly, grab their shoes and socks and then run up a few steps to the track. The Dash portion will consist of a 1 to 1.5 mile run. There will be volunteers to guide athletes and ensure safety. The entire event will be chip timed.
Following the Splash & Dash, join us back on the pool deck for awards, snacks and socializing.
Event Timing: We are in the process of confirming event timing. An event briefing is tentatively scheduled for 10 AM immediately followed by event start. Athletes should plan to arrive at the Dufour Center by 9:30-9:45 AM to set-up their transition areas.
Registration: This an outreach event and is FREE to non DC Tri Club members. We encourage recent college graduates to attend this event and a Meet and Greet Happy Hour on Thursday, November 19 (see Club Event calendar). Splash & Dash Registration for DC Tri Club members is $10. Please register via Eventbrite.
