Looking for a challenge? We have one for you. Instead of hitting the trails for a 5K this summer, join Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation for one in the river! Not the Sioux River, but the lazy river at Drake Springs Family Aquatic Center. Enjoy the challenge of running a 5K against the current! Not interested in completing 44 laps on your own? No worries. Grab a friend and create a two-person or four-person relay. Open to first 100 registrants. Register early for a T-shirt! Registration required.

GREAT CARDBOARD BOAT RACE

Don’t laugh! Cardboard boats really can float! In fact, many boats raced three times at our previous events. Of those, we expect many will return and go for it once again. But here’s the catch: You may only use corrugated cardboard and duct tape. Use your imagination. Cardboard may be waxed. Here’s a hint: If you layer the cardboard, it will be much stronger. No wood, Styrofoam, fiberglass, or plastic, except for your oars and paddles. All boats must be powered by humans ages 7 years or older. Five age divisions. All boats will be judged based on creativity, sea-worthiness—and quickest to sink! Come join in on the fun and win some prizes. Each boat will need two participants, one at each end of the pool. Life jackets for this event will be provided by Parks and Recreation and must be worn by contestants. Swimsuits required.
Registration required, #160009. Registration closes five business days in advance. FREE.

SWIMMING GONE TO THE DOGS

For many school-age children, summer is officially over. As kids head back to the classrooms, canines are perking up for their yearly end-of-summer trip to a place that is usually off limits—the pool! Laurel Oak and Terrace Park Aquatic Centers will each host a “dog-a-POOL-ooza.” We invite your dog to a fun-filled evening at the pool. Dogs will be required to bring their owners (no more than two dogs per owner), be current with their shots, and be ready to have a doggone good time! Dog off-leash rules will apply to this event. No swimming by dog owners.
No registration required. FREE.
