What is Splash & Dash?

Splash & Dash a unique and fun filled day of friendly competition where high school students, friends, families, corporate sponsors and our hero’s on Sarah’s Floor participate in Swim, Bike & Run Relay races.

For our Splash & Dash teams with young children under the age of 8 years old, we have a special Run, Swim, Run relay.

Everyone is welcome to participate in this exciting event. There are 5 registration categories to choose from:

  • Open Triathlon Challenge
  • Friends & Family Triathlon LONG
  • Friends & Family Triathlon SHORT
  • Friends & Family Splash and Dash Relay
  • Heroes & Celebrity (by invitation only)

The Open Triathlon Challenge is a timed race, with a medal ceremony for the winners. The other categories are not competitive and just for fun!


One person will swim in the pool, while the second person spins on a stationary bike and the third person runs on the indoor track. There are three categories of Triathlon:


  • A timed and competitive race for participants 16 years old and over.
  • The three segments (Swim-Bike-Run) are raced as a relay (one after the other).
  • Teams can be one individual participating in all 3 segments, 2-person team where one participant will complete 2 segments or 3-person team where each participant will complete their own discipline.

Family & Friends:

  • 2 options: short or long
  • Non competitive race, but will be timed
  • Bike participants must be 8 years old and over.
  • The two disciplines (Swim-Bike) will start simultaneously and then tag a runner to finish the race.

Heroes and Celebrity relay race:

Heros and Celebrity

This dedicated relay is the highlight event of Splash & Dash. Please join us as we cheer on and celebrate all our heroes: Children who have courageously made their journeys through the hallways of Sarah’s Floor and The Montreal Children’s Hospital.
Our young heroes and their celebrity supporters will run 2 laps of the track, swim two laps in the pool, and run a final 2 laps. Come and cheer them on at 10:30 am

Note: There’s no shortage of heroes, but we are still looking for celebrities to join the team. If you know someone who is well-known in our community and would be interested in helping a great cause and meeting some truly heroic kids, please contact Wendy Lutfy at wendy.lutfy@cedarsevents.ca

Participants in the Heroes and Celebrity Relay can create their own fundraising page here.
