SPLASH & DASH

EVENT OVERVIEW

Leave your bikes at home and join us at the Palmetto TRIbe Splash & Dash Series! This is a USAT-sanctioned race series created and supported in partnership with the City of North Charleston. Our mission is to provide kids, ages 7 to 15, with a fun and safe introduction to the world of multisport racing! Each race in the series includes a short swim (aka “splash”) followed by a short run (aka “dash”), with an event focus on athlete participation and high-energy and safe experience. All participants will receive finisher medals and race event branded gear.
