About This Activity

Come Swim and Run to commemorate Veteran's Day with us!

For our Veteran's, Rancho Sahuarita and the Town of Sahuarita Parks and Recreation  are honored to present a Splash and Dash, 500 yd circular swim x 5K run, to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

The 500 yd swim is located in the Rancho Sahuarita Club House.  We will organize your swim based on your estimated swim time adn swim in a circular pattern, 3-4 athletes per lane.  You will be swimming with other athletes who have a close estimated swim time. Please practice your circular swim before hand, your passing etiquette, and your lap counting skills. We will have lap counters on deck, but we ultimately ask athletes to be responsible for counting their laps in both the swim and the run.

There is a transition area near the pool deck where you may place your towels, shoes, and any other items you may need. You will be asked to have visible bib markings on your shoulders, calf muscles, and swim cap for the information of the timing team.

The run course is a 3 lap course around beautiful Sahuarita Lake. As always, the lake will be open to the public during our event. Please be patient, safe, and careful around other park users. Laps will be counted using your bib number. Please ensure that it is placed on teh left, front of your person. You may be asked for your number by teh counters if it is not clearly visible. Again, please count your own laps as well to ensure that you complete the course.

Age divisions will be timed, calculated, and reported to USAT. However, no prizes will be awarded based strictly on age division. We would like the maximum benefit to go to the Wounded Warrior Project and ask that you show your support to this goal.

There is a 5K only option for those who do not want to swim and for youth. Please see for more details and the regsitration link.

There will be no formal award ceremony. For results see and the Rancho Sahuarita home site.

Thank you for your support!
