Reston Splash and Dash Race Description

Open to athletes ages 6-15

Sunday, August 18, 2019 – Starts at 8:30 am

CORE Foundation is proud to present the 2nd annual Reston Youth Superhero Splash and Dash featuring a swim-run-fun format for kids ages 6-15.  This family friendly event offers a challenge to an experienced youth participant but also will appeal to those wanting to “get their feet wet” in triathlon for the first time.   The pool swim will take place at the beautiful Lake Audubon Pool overlooking the lake.  The run course will be on the adjacent section of the beautiful Reston Paths.  

The event will focus on completion rather than competition and making every athlete feel like a superhero.  All participants will receive a medal, bag of goodies and swag and many high fives from our volunteers.  At the conclusion of the race, athletes can enjoy snow cones courtesy of KONA Ice, yummy finish line snacks by HONEYGROW, BARE Snacks, and more.  Spectating moms will even receive mini massages by The Jackson Clinics.    Volunteers will be dressed like super heros as we want every child to leave feeling like one! 

Local youth celebrities in attendance will be:

  • Joseph "ShowJoe" Dagbe with Yuniverse Foundation- Emcee
  • Julia Sherwood- National Anthem
  • Matteo Lambert with Matteo Runs
  • Zoe Van Winckel - Nationally ranked USAT youth triathlete 

This event is USA Triathlon sanctioned and is made possible through a partnership with the Reston Association and other wonderful community sponsors.  

The event costs include $30 registration plus a $10 USAT annual membership fee (unless your child is a already a member).
