The Route 66 International Course Splash Dash will take place in El Reno, Oklahoma at Lake El Reno. El Reno was established in 1889 and is located at the intersection of two historic highways, nostalgic Route 66 and the Chisholm Trail (Hwy. 81).  The City began as a railroad town and was home to three Land Runs.  It’s a festival town and boasts many heritage celebrations, historic properties and the only rail based trolley operating in the State of Oklahoma.  While steeped in rich history, El Reno sits on the leading edge of oil, gas and wind technology for the State of Oklahoma with major plant sites and specialized training accessibility.

The 1500 meter swim is an open water swim in Lake El Reno. Triangle course. (NOTE: The Olympic will probably be a 2-loop triangle swim that had a 30 yard beach run between loops). Wetsuits should be permitted. Watch message boards at for lake temperature updates.

The 10K run course is pave, flat and winding asphalt road, (2-loop) out and back course.

There aren't any qualification standards to race at the USA Triathlon Aquathlon Triathlon National Championships. All skill levels are welcome. This is the only opportunity to qualify for Aquathlon World Championships.
