On Saturday, July 19th at 9:30 a.m., runners assemble at Aldrich Park for a five kilometer sprint through a watery assault. Volunteers line the course, gleefully spritzing racers with their water guns as they run past. Past races have featured other forms of soaking as well, including water spouting from fire hoses, spraying from enormous showerheads, or bursting forth from hundreds of hurled water balloons.
Splash Dash 5K
Nobody leaves the Splash Dash 5K dry. A series of splash stations equipped with massive showers, shallow pools, and careening water balloons litter the 3.1-mile course, waiting to soak every participant before they cross the finish line. Down one straightaway, runners may confront a gang of volunteers ready to blast them with water guns, only to turn a corner and face the deluge of a fire hose. After braving the watery gauntlet, runners of all ages celebrate their victories at the Splash Dash Bash after party, where prizes are awarded for the best costumes and finish times as runners dance to music and attempt to dry off by matching the speed of their washer's spin cycle.
