Looking for some quick, short races to tune up your triathlon skills?
The Austin Aquatics and Sports Academy is launching a Summer Splash-n-Dash race series for adults and youth.
The non-sanctioned races will take place monthly on Sunday mornings starting in May. A Ladies Only event is scheduled for June, a Couples/Pairs event is set for July, and a Junior Championship will take place in August.
The swims will take place in the academy’s outdoor heated, Olympic-sized pool. Runs will follow the on-site crushed granite trail and paved sidewalks.
Ages 6 to 10 will swim 100 meters and run .3 miles. Ages 11 to 15 will swim 200 meters and run 1 mile. Adults will swim 800 meters and run 2 miles.
Entry fee is $15. To register and see course maps, go here.
