The FIU Aquathlon is part of the USAT Youth Splash and Dash Aquathlon Series and is open to athletes ages 5-99. The focus is on PARTICIPATION rather than competition. Our swim/run event held at Florida International University Biscayne Bay Campus Aquatic Center will offer an all ages open water swim in addition to our pool event. All participants will receive an event t-shirt and swim caps complete with the TYR logo and 2014 Splash and Dash logo. All those who cross the finish line will receive a dog tag featuring the dated Splash and Dash logo on one side and the USA Triathlon logo on the other.
Fees include an USAT Annual Youth Membership. Athletes age 18 and older must purchase a One-Day or Annual USAT Membership prior to racing.
Timing will be a total time of your swim and run, we will be using the racesplitter app to time the event. Results can be found at www.racesplitter.comRace Day Timeline
