Summer runners know a soak in the pool makes scampering in the heat more tolerable. Marana plays into that knowledge with its annual  Splash N' Dash swim-run events.

Participants can be age 6 or older. The event starts with a 200-, 400- or 800-yard lap swim followed by a half-mile, 1.5-mile or 3-mile run. Registration starts at 5:30 p.m., followed by races at 6 at Ora Mae Harn Park, 13250 N. Lon Adams Road. Registration is $5. Participants receive a shirt.

Races are May 22, June 5, June 19, July 3, July 17 and July 31.
