The Boyd Lake Spring Splash, is a late spring Colorado swim race. Participants have the opportunity to swim a 1.2 mile race, a 2.4 mile race or a 5K race. Participants swimming the 1.2 mile as well as either the 2.4 or 5K swim races will receive a discount. Awards will be given out to the top three finishers in each division for each race. Divisions will be both non-wetsuit and wetsuit for both men and women for each race.


Course for the 1.2 and 2.4 mile races will be around a 4 buoy loop, keeping the turn buoys on the swimmer's right, taking 90 degree turns. The 1.2 mile race will be a single loop. The 2.4 mile race will be two loops.

For the 5K, the race will consist of two 2.5K loops. The only difference between the the 2.4 mile and the 5K races will be an extra buoy that the 5K swimmers will need to go around. This will be distinct from the other buoys. See the course map for more details.
