About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Splash Dash on Lake Lanier is an intermediate 5K trail run and obstacle course that features challenging shoreline terrain and 12 obstacles, including 3 lake crossings. The race is an annual event of the Gainesville Jaycees, with all proceeds benefitting Gut Check. Gut Check develops both leadership and communication skills for middle school aged males through organized activities focused on both individual and group accountability. All race participants will receive a technical running shirt and free admission to Laurel Summerfest, featuring live music and fireworks.

Event details and schedule

Packet pickup begins promptly at 8am on race day. Please bring photo ID with you to packet pickup. Each participant will be required to sign a waiver/release of liability prior to receiving their packet and being cleared to race. No refunds will be given for refusal to sign the appropriate waiver. Starting times will be assigned in the order packets are picked up, so plan to arrive early if you desire an early start time. Runners will begin the race in waves of up to 12, with start times every 10 minutes beginning at 9am. This is done to ensure a smooth race with minimal bottlenecks. There will be two staffed water stations along the course. Runners are encouraged to wear attire that is appropriate for mud and water, as there will be lake crossings and mud-based obstacles. Participants are encouraged to bring a change of clothes, as facilities are available following the race. Parking is widely available at the race site. Any additional relevant information will be shared in the days prior to the event.
