Dash and splash returns
The popular Dash and Splash series has returned to the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre with a bang, with more than 50 athletes competing for athletic supremacy.
In a first for the swimming and running event, athletes competed last Friday, pushing the three-event series forward by a month to avoid wet season conflicts.
Athletes competed in either the short or long course, with the short course comprising a 2km run and a 200m swim, while the long course involved a 4km run and a 400m swim.
While many competitors participated in individual events for junior and open ages, there were also many teams taking part, including parents and children in a new racing category.
Among the winners were familiar faces Stevi Evans and Jude Millard, as well as Jesse Evans, who engaged in a battle with Mandurah athlete Reece Harris to win the Male Open Age Long Course category.
The next event in the Dash and Splash series will take place on Friday, October 19, and the final event of the series will take place on Friday, November 16.
