Dunk N' Dash Returns to Avon

The Town of Avon is proud to present our 13th Annual Dunk-N-Dash Aquathlon Series. Athletes can register for one event or for the entire series. Swimmers in the Dunk-N-Dash can opt to make one or two 800-yard loops around the Nottingham Lake. The 5K run starts and finishes at the Lake’s Avon Performance Pavilion. The route runs north around Nottingham Lake, follows the path to Avon Elementary and turns onto the scenic river recreation path. At “Bob the Bridge," runners turn around and return on the same path detouring to the south side of the lake for the finish line.

SAVE money by preregistering at the Avon Recreation Center or sign up day of to participate.
