A few questions you might have... and the answers.

A few questions you might have... and the answers.

Q: What do I get with my registration?
A: You are going to get soaking wet. Runners get Splash Dash shirts, too . Plus, stick around for the Splash Dash BASH, where we'll have music and summer treats after you run the dash so that you can have a blast afterwards, too.

Q: Will there be any swimming?
A: Nope. Not at all. Not even a little bit.

Q: Will you need volunteers?
A: Of course we will. Email Info@SplashDash5K.com. Volunteers are going to have a ball! From tossing water balloons, to packet pick up, blasting water guns, and clean up, we are going to need it all. Plus, if your sorority, team or girl scout troop supplies us 20 great volunteers we will donate $200 to your organization or your fave charity! Volunteers can stick around to enjoy the great music and sweet, cold summer treats, too.

Q: What's the minimum age to participate?
A: For the 5K race 5 years old and up. For the 1K 3 years old and up.

Q: What should I wear?
A: We personally like clown noses, pirate hats and afro wigs. Goggles, sunglasses, scuba gear and hazmat suits are cool, too. But, if all you have is a t-shirt, shorts, and running shoes you should be okay.

Q: How can I pick up my race packet (or a friend's packet)?
A: Bring this signed waiver to the packet pick up location. Packet pickup will be atLuke‚Äôs Locker, 3046 Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75205.  You can pick up your packet on Friday, July 14 from 11AM to 6PM or on site at the race Saturday, July 15. If you are picking up for a friend he/she will need to sign this consent form and provide you a copy of his/her ID. Even though race day pick up is available at the race there's no bigger buzz kill than waiting in line to get your packet when you're ready and super pumped to run the Splash Dash. So, pick it up at the pre-race pick up location or send someone from your running crew to get it with a copy of your ID.

Q: Do you issue refunds?
A: Nope

Q: Is the 1K different from the 5K?
A: Other than 4 kilometers? Yes, it is slightly different. The smaller kiddos will be participating in this shorter distance.

Q: Can I run the 1K Fun Run with my kid?
A: Sure thing! In fact, the family should wager on who will win- you or the whipper snapper. Simply register for the 1K race along with your kiddo. If you are already registered for the 5K race then your 1K participation is complimentary. As long as you have a bib you are good to go for the 1K race.  Parents can run the 1K free of charge with their children, whether or not they run the 5K.

Q: Is the 5K race stroller friendly?
A: Those child advocacy groups told us "NO!". The demonstration of the stroller on the slip n slide didn't go so well. Sorry, no strollers permitted.

Q: Is the race timed?
A: The first adult male, adult female and child under 12 that cross the finish line will receive a race prize. There will be no timing chips issued.
