Splash & Dash Updates

**May 20 Update - We are awaiting for the local and state governments to allow events/groups to resume in Central Florida. In the meantime, we are not pestering for permission to host these events. We are encouraging you to participate in our virtual race series. When parks and beaches are reopen...we will be having meetings to make plans for a Splash & Dash series in the Summer/Fall. You can expect an update from us before this happens with our new safety protocol and social distancing rules. Thank you for your patience.


The April 8th, May 6th and June 3rd Splash & Dash are CANCELLED/POSTPONED.

The March 11th event was a "Dash Only" due to the algae bloom in Lake Minneola. We will transfer ALL March 11th registrations to any future 2020 event when they resume. All participants will receive an email when we have more information.

We will apply for replacement/additional dates in May/June/July when possible. The website will be updated accordingly.
