    Splash & Dash is timed using equipment by RFID Timing Systems. All participants need to wear a timing chip around their ankle. Participants going out on the run course need to wear their race number facing forward. Swim out time is gathered by the timing chip on the ankle, whereas run out and run finish times are gathered by the timing chip on the back of the race number.


    All Splash & Dash races are held at the Special Event Ramp, on the north side of the lake between Mill and Rural. Parking is available at Tempe Town Lake Marina and limited parking is available at Lake View Dr under the 202.


    Ironcare Splash & Dash adheres to U.S. Masters Swimming guidelines for wetsuit use. Wetsuits may be used when the water temperature does not exceed 78 F.

    Tempe Town Lake weather and water temperature


    In order for Tempe Town Lake to host a full body contact event the pH of the water must be 9.0 or below, as required by Maricopa County. An increase in pH is caused by an abundance of algae in the lake typically caused by an increase in the temperature and little to no movement of water through the lake. If the pH does not meet this standard Splash and Dash will be cancelled. In event of cancellation all registrations will be either refunded or transferred to a future Splash and Dash at the discretion of the individuals involved.
