The Middle MAC Dash is open to youth in grades 6 through 8. This FREE event is designed to mirror the adult event on a shorter course for kids who are ready for a competitive, timed event and desire to be a triathlete. The Middle MAC Dash includes the following approximate distances to be completed as an individual.

SWIM: 100 yard (4 pool lengths)
BIKE: 2 miles
RUN: 1 mile
Middle MAC Dash

The swim course at the Madras Aquatic Center requires the completion of 4 lengths in a 25-yard lap pool. An estimated 100 yard swim time is required to determine your race heat. You may be circle swimming in a lane with competitors who report a similar swim time so accurate estimates are important.

The bike course begins and ends at the Aquatic Center and consists of one lap around the second roundabout (bears) and back to the Aquatic Center. All participants must wear an ANSI/Snell approved helmet while biking. Ride on the right side of the road and pass to the left. Volunteers and flaggers will be at the intersections along the course, but the course is not closed to traffic.

The run starts at the Aquatic Center, goes around the middle school soccer field, up the north side of the middle school building and onto the track to the finish line.

The registration for the Middle MAC Dash is the same as the adult event and closes on the Sunday prior to the event. All Middle MAC Dash participants must have a parent/guardian sign their registration form and must be pre-registered.
