2018 Dunk-n-Dash Series -That's a wrap, thanks for a great race series! See you in 2019!

The Town of Avon  is proud to present our 14th 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. Participants can also opt to swim our 2.4 mile  swim course in the  lake by swimming 5 laps around the lake and forgoing the running portion of the race. Stick around following the race to  participate in our FREE raffle with over $100 in prizes every week.  

Open Water Swim Club - DONE FOR THE 2018 SEASON!

Thursdays, 5:30-7:30pm

Beginning June 6, 2019

For some people, open water swimming is about connecting with nature and escaping the day-to-day of life. For some it is an amazing full-body workout. For others it is part of their triathlon training. For some people it is just a really fun, exhilarating experience. For us it has been all of these things, and we love it! We want to give our fellow swimmers a chance to experience it in a comfortable, safe, and fun environment.

Town of Avon staff provide lifeguards and setup a .25 mile/400 meter (approximate) triangle course set up on the south side of the lake.

Check in by the boat dock and log cabin located at the southeast shore of Nottingham Lake.

Driving Directions: Exit I-70 at 167, go southbound on Avon Road, head west (right) at West Benchmark Blvd (third roundabout). The road will end in the parking area for the cabin.
