We’re taking a different direction with the Dip & Dash races this year – only one standalone swim-run event with individual and team challenge components.
There are three individual distances for the event and a team challenge category for teams of 3. The three individual distances are: 350m swim and 1k run, 750m swim and 4 mile run, or 1500m swim and 4 mile run.
The team challenge will be structured similar to a triathlon mixed team relay: teams of three where each member will complete a swim and run before tagging off to the next team member. Its a very fast paced and fun event to do and to watch. There will be two categories of mixed team relay (Male-Female-Male or Female-Male-Female) and a single gender category (all male or all female). The team with the lowest overall time is the winner. You can capture the same feeling Team USA had when it won the mixed team relay at ITU Worlds!
INDIVIDUAL SWIM – RUN EVENTS
There are three distances of swim-run events for this race.
- 750m Swim and a 4 Mile Run
- 1500m Swim and a 4 Mile Run
- 400m Swim and a 1.25 Mile Run
TEAM CHALLENGE RELAY
We’re taking a page from the triathlon super-sprint mixed team relay format.
Teams of three participants can compete in the Team Challenge Relay races. Unlike traditional triathlon relays, each member of these teams will complete both the swim and run segments before tagging off to the next team member.
Teams will be structured as follows:
- All Male
- All Female
The team with the lowest overall time in each category will win. This is a great opportunity for clubs and or family/friends groups to compete together in a fast paced and spectator friendly team event.
