Students gathered around the SwimOutlet banner along the finish line
The Splash and Dash covered a city pool, a mile worth of city streets and big loops though the Hancock College Campus… unfortunately I only got to see a third of the action. The good news is that I’ve had pictures trickling in from a few different places and thought I’d share some bonus shots that show more of the event :)
A smiling Central Coast Crossfit Swimmer!
a lot of participants were new to organized swims, luckily we had caps and goggles provided by SwimOutlet.com!
One of the guys from the football team was so new to swimming he didn't know how to swim and water jogged 500 yards in the shallow end!

Marie and Kelly crossing a very appropriately named College Street to get to the college
Aquathoners running on campus
apparently spiderman rocked the 5k?
nearing the finish!
the finish line ran down the front of the gymnasium building and through 2 rows of sponsors and exhibitors, a first for this event!
proof I was there! crunching numbers in a backroom after clearing out the pool
