Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to cancel this year's Sprint and Splash event for June 20. The event planning committee is extremely disappointed, but feel it would not be in the best interest of our participants, sponsors or volunteers. Additionally, due to the immense amount of time and effort that goes into planning this event and the uncertainty of federal and state regulations that will be implemented as the year continues, we have decided to cancel rather than postpone.

All pre-registered participants will receive an email from us regarding next steps. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.

The 9th Annual Sprint & Splash will be held at Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township, Michigan.  

Sprint and Splash Events include:

  • 5K Run / Walk

  • Duathlon: which combines a 5K run and a 2-mile paddle using a kayak or stand-up paddle board

  • 2-mile Kayak race

  • 2-mile recreational Stand-Up Paddleboard race

  • 6-mile sanctioned Stand-Up Paddleboard race


In addition to a variety of competitive events, there will be music, food, craft beer and vendors. The Sprint and Splash Beach Village is open throughout the day, giving participants and spectators the option to visit local vendors before or after their race.
