A children’s swimming and running event scheduled for this weekend in Palm Beach Gardens has been postponed.
The Gardens Splash & Dash will instead be Sept. 25. The distance of the race depends on which of five age groups a child falls into. The longest swim is 200 yards, and the longest run is one mile. Swimming takes place first. Competitors leave their running gear at the end of the pool, so they can get right to the “dash.”
All finishers get a medal. There will be an awards ceremony for older divisions at the end of the event.
Children born in the years 2002-2012 are encouraged to participate, and their parents can register them online at pbgrec.com/login or in person at the Burns Road Recreation Center, 4404 Burns Rd.
