Race for a Reason
at the Dip and Dash Aquathlons
Like us, we bet you thought that Polio is a disease of the past. Luckily, here in the United States that is the case. That’s not true for some of the most impoverished countries in the world, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria and Chad.
The good news is there is an end in sight to infection from the virulent Wild Polio Virus, with a goal towards global eradication in 2015. But there is still much work to be done, vaccines to be distributed and care to be provided.
Please join us as we support Rotary International’s Polio Plus efforts to eradicate this crippling disease.
This year, a portion of the proceeds from all of the Dip and Dash Aquathlons will support this effort. Additional fund raising is also available directly from our online registration process.
Dip & Dash #1 - July 14, 2013
Dip & Dash #2 - August 11, 2013
Dip & Dash #3 - September 15, 2013
We've made some changes to the events by adding a swim only and a run only portion to both Dip and Dash #1 and #3 so you can encourage your family and friends to get out and fund raise for this important cause.
Our Tri Santa Cruz is coming up on August 11.
An Aquabike category for both distances has been added to Tri Santa Cruz in response to requests for this event...so get out there and sign up!
Going Even Greener This Year!
Over the past few years we've really been making an effort to cut the rampant waste we see at race sites. Last year we introduced our Water Monsters and compostable cups that eliminate bottled water waste at the finish line for our large races.
This year we are moving to completely eliminate plastic goody bags at our events. We have partnered with Virtual Race Bags to produce an online version of a race bag. As a participant of this year's event you will receive a 'Welcome' email invitation to the Virtual Goody Bag prior to the event giving you access to the bag. In the bag you will find an array of valuable information including exclusive offers, coupons, giveaways and messages from our sponsors, both local and national.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! EARN DOLLARS OR RACE CREDITS.
Can't race? Got a family member who wants to get up close on the race course? Come on out an volunteer for an event. We always need lots of great volunteers. Our volunteer program is officially launced as "Time is Money". Atheltes, for every hour you volunteer you earn a $10 credit towards any other 2012 or 2013 event. If you have a school group or non-profit organization you can earn donations to your group. Contact us for more information on how to get involved and earn your race credits.
Thanks to our sponsors for supporting another great year of racing
