As you are probably aware, it rained quite a bit in Tempe today. Tempe has received more than .2 inches of rain. When this happens, the lake must be retested before allowing anyone in the water. Unfortunately, the testing takes 24 hours to complete after a rain.
This means that we are unable to swim in Tempe Town Lake tomorrow. The XTERRA Rockhopper Triathlon with proceed as a duathlon.
Splash & Dash participants may transfer to another Splash & Dash, use entry fee as a credit to another 4 Peaks Racing event or request a refund. Please email email@example.com to let us know your preference.

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. Furthermore, should there be 1/5 of an inch of rain within 24 hours of Splash & Dash the event will be cancelled. In the event of cancellation all registrations will be either refunded (less any online processing fees) or transferred to a future Splash and Dash at the discretion of the individuals involved.
