Victoria Park Pool Splash and Dash

2014 Results

The 3rd Annual Victoria Park Pool Splash and Dash has been postponed due to the storm.  Originally slated for saturday July 5th 2014 (rain or shine) at the Victoria Park Pool. stay tuned for updates or check our facebook page.

Our heats are very similar to last year. New this year for the adults who want to try this event, we have a 150 metre swim followed by a 2 km run.

Yes you can swim with your young child, water wings are allowed, a number of kids used them last year. Yes you can run with your child and definitely help them get their shoes on while they are wet. The transition will take place on the grass near the gate to the pool. Parents ran with their kids last year. We will not be keeping times (unless it is requested), we will time the adult race.

All running is on the trails in the park. A beautiful park!
There will be refreshments and cap gun assisted starts.
