Splash and DashWestover Park

Splash and Dash is a fun and fast-growing sport that combines running and swimming. The run portion takes place on a combination of trail, road, and path.  The swim portion takes place in Westover Pool.  The focus is on participation and completion rather than competition, while exposing participants to the exciting world of multisport events without the added experience and expense that biking requires.
