What is Splash & Dash?

Splash & Dash is a fun-filled day of Swim-Bike-Run races for adults, high school students and families. For our teams with young children under the age of 8 years old it is a Run-Swim-Run relay.

The event is open to everyone – no matter what your age or athletic ability. There are four registration categories for your team to choose from:

  • Triathlon OPEN
  • Triathlon Friends & Family LONG
  • Triathlon Friends & Family SHORT
  • Friends & FamilySplash and Dash

The Triathlon OPEN is a timed race, with medals given out to the winners where as the all the other categories are not competitive and just for fun!
 

NEW THIS YEAR: TRIATHLON SPLASH AND DASH

One person will swim in the pool, while the second person spins on a stationary bike and the third person runs on the indoor track. There are three categories of Triathlon Splash and Dash:

  • A timed and competitive race for participants 16 years old and over.
  • The three segments (Swim-Bike-Run) are raced as a relay (one after the other).
  • Teams can be one individual participating in all 3 segments, 2-person team where one participant will complete 2 segments or 3-person team where each participant will compete their own discipline.

Family & Friends

  • 2 options: short or long
  • Bike participants must be 8 years old and over.
  • The two disciplines (Swim-Bike) will start simultaneously and then will tag runner to finish the race.
  • Cut-Off Time indicates the time that will be allocated to the participant who does not complete the required distance prior to the cut-off time.
  • RELAY each segment of the race starts one after the other.


Why Splash & Dash?

Splash & Dash raises money for Sarah’s Fund for Cedars, founded in 2001 by a then 8-year old girl undergoing treatment for Ewing’s Sarcoma. Since its inception Sarah’s Fund has raised over $12 million to support the needs of the Hematology-Oncology division at The Montreal Children’s Hospital.

This year our goal is to raise $300,000 for vital programs and services improving the lives of young cancer patients and their families on Sarah’s Floor, the inpatient oncology ward at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
