Family Splash and Dash in Enniskillen!

Spencer Dock Splash and Dash 2019 Boys with Boom

Family Fun in Enniskillen

The beautiful riverside setting of Enniskillen is hosting the third and final Waterways Ireland Family Splash and Dash of 2019!

This free-of-charge event begins at 11am on Sunday August 11th with kids and adults getting to participate on the same relay team in a fun non-competitive format.

How it works

  • Adults and kids participate on the same team in a swim-run event.
  • The kids start off with a 50m swim (for the smaller kids) or 200m swim (for the older kids) followed by an 800m run.
  • They then tag their adult team mate who swims 500m before exiting the water and running 1.5km.
  • The adult then re-joins the kid at the Tag Zone before they both cross the finish line together.

The Family Splash and Dash is non-competitive, suitable for anyone over the age of six and open to people of all abilities.

Registration is between 09:30 and 10:35 at the Lakeland Forum in Enniskillen and the first kids will enter the water at 11am!

We expect the event to last 45mins in total.

It is being run jointly by Triathlon Ireland and Cuilcagh Triathlon Club with the support of Waterways Ireland.

The focus of the events is encouraging adults and kids to take part in physical activity together along Ireland's wide range of inland waterways.
