Kids Splash and Dash planned in Pleasanton today

Event aims to introduce youngster to multi-sport activities

The Tri-Valley Triathlon Club is set to hold the first installment of its third annual Kids Splash and Dash Series today at the Dolores Bengston Aquatic Center in Pleasanton.

The event, open to children between 5 and 15 years old, is designed to introduce young athletes to multi-sport activities, such as events combining swimming and running.

The young athletes will swim between 50 and 200 yards and then run either one and two kilometers, with distances based on the child's age.

Today's event opens with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. and the first wave of participants starting their swim/run at 10:30 a.m. The second Kids Splash and Dash installment is scheduled for Sept. 7.
