Local athlete Pat Brug won his third Splash N Dash of the summer Aug. 11.

Brug, taking part in the long course of the Splash N Dash, finished with a cumulative time of 24:47, nearly 1:20 better than his nearest competitor.

The Splash N Dash is a bi-weekly event held by the Los Alamos Triatomics. The event’s purpose is to help athletes prepare for the Los Alamos Triathlon, which will be held Saturday.

The Splash N Dash features two courses, a long course with a 400-yard swim followed by a 5-kilometer run, and a short course which features a 200-yard swim and a 3K run. Some competitors at the Aug. 11 race actually competed on shorter courses than the prescribed distances, but Brug was not one of them.

Brug completed the swim leg in 5:03 and the run in 19:44 to earn the long course victory.

This summer, Brug won all three of the Splash N Dashes he competed in — Myles Fitzgerald was the top finisher on the long course event July 28, the race Brug missed.

On the short course, Mike Strevell, with his total time of 15:11, was the first finisher. Immediately following him were Steve Strevell (15:31) and Josh Strevell (17:40), all of whom competed on an abbreviated course.

Here are the results from Wednesday’s Splash N Dash (swim time, run time, final time):
