After swimming, runners had the option of either running the long course, which was three miles, or the short course, which was just under two miles. Kids could also run a course that was just over a mile.
Athletes take part in Splash N Dash

The Los Alamos Triatomics Multisport Club hosted its second Splash N Dash of the summer this week.

The event gives athletes from around the area a chance to test themselves on land and in the water.

Athletes of all ages and abilities came to the Splash N Dash, which began at the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.

There were several different courses available to the competitors depending on their abilities.

Two people could also team up for a relay.

For the heartiest competitors, the course included a 400-yard swim followed by a three-mile run.

The shorter course included a 200-yard swim followed by a 1.9 mile run.

Young kids had the option of doing a 100-yard swim followed by a 1.3 mile run.

Competitors are informed of their finishing times, but there is no prize for winning.

Time is kept as a way of letting the racers keep track of their progress throughout the year, not for competition purposes.

There will be two more Splash N Dash events this summer, on July 5 and July 19, both of which will begin at the Aquatic Center.

Registration begins at 6:15 p.m.

In addition, the Triatomics host a time-trial race every Tuesday evening that the public is welcome to attend.
