INTROUCTIONCome out and enjoy an evening of fun and racing with your friends at Splash & Dash. Splash & Dash is a unique event with a relaxed atmosphere that is suitable for all levels of athlete. Whether fine tuning for that big race or getting your feet wet at your first multisport event, Splash & Dash is the place to be!
The storm that came through Tempe earlier today produced enough rain that additional water sampling is required. The results of these tests can often take more than 24 hours. This, coupled with the weather report of more storms and rain, has necessitated 4 Peaks Racing and The City of Tempe to cancel the September 18 Splash & Dash. All registered participants can either transfer to a future Splash & Dash or request a refund.
COURSESplash & Dash begins and ends at the Special Event Ramp, on the north side of the lake between Mill and Rural.

PARKINGAll Splash & Dash races are held at the Special Event Ramp, on the north side of the lake between Mill and Rural. Parking is available at Tempe Town Lake Marina and limited parking is available at Lake View Dr under the 202.
pH POLICYIn order for Tempe Town Lake to host a full body contact event the pH of the water must be 9.0 or below, as required by Maricopa County. An increase in pH is caused by an abundance of algae in the lake typically caused by an increase in the temperature and little to no movement of water through the lake. If the pH does not meet this standard Splash and Dash will be cancelled. Furthermore, should there be 1/5 of an inch of rain within 24 hours of Splash & Dash the event will be cancelled. In the event of cancellation all registrations will be either refunded (less any online processing fees) or transferred to a future Splash and Dash at the discretion of the individuals involved.
