ROUTE 66 SPLASH-n-DASH
ROUTE 66 SPLASH n DASH is a part of the Tri-OKC Splash n Dash Series. Splash-n Dash, or 'Aquathlon' is a swim followed by a run in one exciting event. Although perfect for beginners, the 2015 series again culminates with the USAT AQUATHLON NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in October at which athletes can qualify to compete for the USA in the 2016 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.
Closer to home, race three events from the Tri-OKC series, (one in Norman at Lake Thunderbird, one in Edmond at Lake Arcadia, and one in El Reno, at Lake El Reno), and you will be in the running for the Tri-OKC Splash-n-Dash championship.
