Just received an e-mail today about a new splash n' dash series in Silver Spring, MD put on by Capital Sprints. Am I the only one who thinks $55 per race to do a 300 meter swim and a 5K run is a bit steep? I moved here from Colorado, and back there they have a splash and dash every week in Boulder. It cost $15 to $20 and entailed a 1500 meter open water swim and 5K run (plus, you got to do the race with a lot of the pros who live in Colorado). I'll be surprised if they get a lot of people signing up for the series at that price.
