ABOUT THE RACE
Join us for this family friendly Splash and Dash in beautiful Rye Town Park where youth will swim-run to the finish. This race is put on by The Westchester Triathlon - a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote youth fitness and introduce and offer youth options in multi-sport racing. Age groups include: 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-17; additional Super Sprint distance for ages 11-17 who wish to challenge themselves with a farther distance (optional). Everyone will receive a t-shirt as they cross the finish line as well as post race food and beverages on the beach!

Age group winners will receive awards for the top three finishers in each age group (male/female) at the post race ceremony based on finish time. Super Sprint will award finishers for the top three male and female finishers overall. The Super Sprint is a longer distance race for those looking to go farther and be competitive.
Please note: 11-17 year olds will swim out further and might not be able to touch the bottom. We will be launching waves in small groups to allow for ease of swimming.
