Strive 2 Tri has been approved to host a Youth Splash & Dash event (September 1, 2012) within the beltway at the Linson Pool in College Park, MD across from UMD. This is open to all kids (7-17) and is destined to be a fun, well-orchestrated event to bring beginners in to the sport as well as challenge more experienced young athletes. We have included a Relay Team division for youths who are not great swimmers where they can partner up with a buddy and still have fun. Lastly there is a Youth Team Challenge where we are inviting local competitive swim teams to participate.
What a perfect way for kids to end the summer especially after watching weeks of US athletes compete at the Summer Olympics. The event will take place within an outdoor 50m pool followed by a transition to a run course closed to vehicular traffic for this USAT sanctioned fun race. Also there are acres of BBQ grills and locations for families to picnic after if interested.
Sign your kids up and come support the Strive 2 Tri Jr. Triathlon Club with this inaugural event. Many of you know Strive 2 Tri as we regularly volunteer within the community and at races. Most recently at the General Smallwood Race where we supported a water station and were the 1st faces many of you saw when you crossed the finish line.
