Alaska Outdoor

Splash n’ Dash Series

Due to COVID-19 & the rising #’s in cases, we have decided to cancel race #2 & 3. Our mission is to build up our triathlon community for kids and we feel that right now kids need us to reduce the COVID #’s more than races so that they can return to school full time in 5weeks. We look forward to hosting the Outdoor Splash n’ Dash in 2021!
