Introducing Perth's newest event, the Summer Splashdown. Cool off this summer in a 5km fun run with a watery twist held at Champion Lakes Regatta Centre, a man made world class aquatic facility. Get wet tackling the 7 water obstacles, whiz down the giant slip and slide, mount up for the pool pony derby, splosh through the mud pit, navigate your way through the foam car wash, crawl, climb and conquer the 13 land obstacles.
A cross between a fun run, obstacle course racing, and the television shows Wipeout and It's A Knockout - this will be entertaining, fun, great for spectators and a family day out. A fun run that is fun and anyone can take part, for the competitive racers we have a timed section and those doing it for fun there is no time limit you can take as long as you like. This race is a trip back to summer days in the backyard pool and the playground nothing to daunting or scary just lots of fun!!
Competitors will tackle 7 giant water obstacles which will involve swinging, balancing, climbing, ducking, and getting very wet, the 13 land military style obstacles will involve crawling, climbing, trampling, hurdling, bouncing and then wading through a mud pit be prepared to get very muddy and very wet.
A specifically designed children's course for ages 6 -11 will be a scaled down version of the adult course and ages 12+ will compete on the adult track.
it will be challenging, fun, entertaining and great for a summer day event.
Prizes will be available for the best outfits on the day for individual, couples, teams and kids. The fastest male and female plus second and third place will have prize money with $600 for first place, $300 for second and $150 for third place in the competitive section.
