Race Description

Don’t forget your running shoes, swimsuit and towel! After we dash, you get to hang out and take a splash at our post-race pool party!

We are excited to announce that we have added a new race to our race series! The 4 Mile Dash-N-Splash will have an exciting finish at the Tomahawk Aquatic Center. Following the race, a delicious brunch will be served at our post race pool party. Runners will have full access to the pool- literally you can stay until 5pm! Families can join the fun, have brunch and swim when they purchase a post-race pool party wristband. Runners will also receive a race tank top. Awards will be given to the top male, female overall finishers, top residents and top 3 in each age group. 

*The fee of this race includes brunch, tank top, chip timing, admission to the pool and transportation.


Looking for a unique race experience? Think a pool party is fun after a run? Well we think this new course will take your breath away. The 4 mile run will start at Community Park and will end at Central Park near the Tomahawk Aquatic Center. The course will take place on the I & M Canal and will continue on for about 3 miles.  Runners will exit the I & M Canal onto Tryon and continue down McMillin Drive to South Navajo Drive where they will eventually enter onto the path at Central Park ending near the pool.

Are you wondering how runners get to the starting line?

Since the start and finish line are in two separate locations, runners are strongly encouraged to park at Arrowhead Community Center (Central Park). A bus will be take runners to Community. We also recommend having a family member or friend drop runners off at the starting location.
