June Splash-n-Dash

The June Pure Austin Splash-n-Dash was the 3rd consecutive sell out of the season.  This event sold out in record time and was full 6 days before the event.   There are no more registrations available once the event fills at 200, so don't procrastinate.  The July event has 71 people signed up as of this posting.

Also, please remember to arrive at least 30 minutes early so that you have plenty of time to check-in, fill out any necessary USAT paperwork, get your timing chip, and setup your transition area.  Check-in closes at 5:50 PM, no exceptions.  

OK, back to the event:  Scorching temperatures made for a refreshing swim and tough run as Joe Thorne and Carla Uribe took the overall honors.   Former UT track star Darren Brown also made a very respectable showing at his first ever competitive swim with a 3rd place finish.

Special thanks goes to Capital Credit Union for the awesome pocket knife give-aways and to Zen for some remarkable cold and tasty post race California rolls.
