Splash-n-Dash Columbus

The City of Columbus Recreation and Parks, USA Triathlon, OSU Ross Heart Hospital, and the TriColumbus triathlon club have partnered together to create a fun community event designed to get youth involved in the exciting world of multisport and in heart healthy activities.

The Splash-n-Dash Columbus is designed as more of a participatory event then that of a competitive event. The goal is to encourage participation regardless of experience or fitness level.

This event is the capstone event in a series of training splash-n-dash events this summer organized at various Recreation & Parks recreational centers.

100% of the entry fee is donated to the Columbus Recreation & Parks aquatics program and P.L.A.Y. program.
