To encourage participation and enjoyment for all, The Splash Mash Dash Kids Triathlon is an untimed event. However, we do have awesome finisher medals that look just like mom and dad's that they have collected over the years! We try to encourage every child to do their best and practice racing in a supportive environment so they will be ready for the real deal when they are older. We encourage parents to manually time their child if they are interested in a time for their race.
Race will start and finish at Northridge Recreation Center located at 8801 S. Broadway, Highlands Ranch, CO 80129.
All parking will be across the street from the Recreation Center at the churches. Look for "Race Parking" signs. Please allow extra time for parking.
