Calling all superheroes for the

Superhero Splash and Dash virtual event!


Register now and complete your event between August 1st – August 30th (Compete your event as many times as you likefor one registration!  It’s your DIY Event!)

Looking for a fun DIY race experience for your child during COVID-19?   CORE Foundation is here to save the day!   We’ve turned our 4th annual Reston Youth Superhero Splash and Dash into a fun-filled “virtual’ experience with the power and excitement of our in-person event.

Participants complete the activities for the virtual event on their own time in the place of their choosing and still receive all of the great swag and medals that they would in a live experience.  The superhero swag kit includes:

  • Cape
  • Bandana/mask
  • Race medal
  • Superhero crafts
  • Jump rope
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Crayons or colored pencils
  • Finish line tape to create a virtual finish line
  • Instructions

So, how does a Virtual DIY Event work?  The traditional Superhero Splash and Dash features a swim-run-fun format for kids ages 5-15.  No pool?  No problem!  Substitute the swim with your “athlete’s choice” of activity.   Your young superhero will swim (hopscotch, bike, play catch, etc.…) and then run the suggested distance based on their age anytime between August 1st – August 30th.  Your young athlete may even have so much fun that they decide to race again and again!  The point is to have fun and get moving and have them feel fantastic about their achievement.

Suggested Course Distance Information:

6 yrs   50 meters 1 K
7 – 10 100 meters 1 K
11 – 15 150 meters 2 K

Parents or older siblings can map out distances by using a smartphone or sports watch.   The event will focus on participation rather than competition and making every athlete feel like a superhero.

Registration fee*:

$35 – through June 30th
