Triatomics News:

The Los Alamos Triatomics Multisports Club ( www.facebook.com/triatomics) invites athletes to participate in the annual Splash n Dash series (swim+run) starting Wednesday May 29. 

This year, the club is hosting six Splash n Dash events continuing past the Los Alamos Triathlon. The additional dates for Splash n Dash events are June 12, June 26, July 10, July 24 and Aug. 7.

This event is excellent preparation for the Los Alamos Triathlon (https://racesonline.com/events/los-alamos-triathlon), which is July 20. Its also a fun crosstraining activity to throw into a summer fitness routine.

Athletes of all abilities are welcome to this fun family event. Pick a course and starting group according your expected swim time. Parents must accompany their kids on the youth course run. Swimmers and runners can pair up. Folks that participate in at least three of the six events will receive some cool swag.

There is no cost to participate in the Splash n Dash and non-members are welcome to participate. Non-member participants (or their guardians) will be asked to sign a waiver form or better yet, they can become a member at http://www.newmexicosportsonline.com/events/details?id=67910.

Registration is open 6:20 to 6:50 behind the Aquatic Center and the first swimmer pushes off at 7. Registration is limited to 75 participants. The run will be on sidewalks around the Aquatic Center, Los Alamos High school and local neighborhoods.

As before, there will be three courses this year:

  • Long course includes a 400M swim and 5K run;
  • Short course includes a 200M swim and 3K run; and
  • Youth only course includes a 100M swim and 1 mile run.
