It's SCARY how much fun we can pack into a day at Patagonia Lake!
For a low registration price, Youth recieve a goody bag, COTTON T shirt, treats, and a participants medal. Age group awards will be given in USAT required 2 year age divisions. The race is TIMED by bib number. Please body mark and ensure that bibs are easy to see.
Meal and tech shirts are NOT included in order to keep costs low. Please upgrade to a tech shirt for $10 and add a meal for $5 during registration if you'd like those options.
We've just added a Youth Spooky Splash to the races on October 29. A USAT Splash and Dash with 2 distances options is designed to give young people an opportunity to compete with each other in the open water.
The water will be chilly: about 60 degrees F. If you have or can rent a wetsuit, it is encouraged. Parents are not allowed on the race course, but VOLUNTEERS are welcome and encouraged to help, especially in the swim. Parents who would like to VOLUNTEER should contact the race director. Swim support volunteers, who simply line the course and tread water in their wetsuits to help youth, are needed.
The run course shares part of the adult run course and the adult finish line. Please use caution when running. Again, USAT rules specify that parents cannot aid or participate in the youth event, but VOLUNTEERS for the run course are welcome and encouraged. Please register as a volunteer.
Finish line is shared by all athletes. Please move safely away from the finish line for victory photos.
