More than 800 soaked up fun at Splash ‘n’ Dash 5K [video]

Participants made a big splash to help kids at Norton Children’s Hospital

The third annual Splash ‘n’ Dash 5K Walk/Run was held on Saturday, Aug. 5, on the Big Four Lawn at Louisville Waterfront Park. More than 800 runners and walkers splashed their way through a 5k course or a kid-friendly 1k course filled with fun and refreshing ways to cool off in splash zones. All of this was made possible thanks to the hard work of 280 volunteers and committee members.

After the race, participants gathered near the Big Four Bridge and enjoyed family-friendly activities in the “Just for Kids” Zone, presented by Hwang’s Martial Arts. Activities included a rock wall, water slides, inflatables, face painting, volleyball, music, a dance party and more!
