is proud to present the 1st annual Reston Youth Splash and Dash in cooperation with the Reston Association. This fun-filled community event will offer a perfect introduction to triathlon featuring a swim / run combination for kids aged 6-15.
The family friendly event is designed to help the youth athlete “get their feet wet” in triathlon. Participants receive a goody bag with a t-shirt and swag, a cool medal, and high fives from our awesome volunteers! Snow cones will be provided by Kona Ice!
Proceeds for the event benefit “Kids Helping Kids,” a CORE Foundation program which enables triathlon experiences for low income youth. Athletes have the option of launching a personal fundraising campaign, creating lemonade stands, etc.
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to cross the finish line!
