Three Rivers College is holding its Dash and Splash 5K Run/Walk on July 12 at Grille It Up in East Park in Dexter to support the Student Success Fund at Three Rivers College – Dexter. Registration will begin at 5 p.m. and the race will start at 6 p.m.

For the “splash” portion of the event, the Dexter Parks and Recreation Department will open the Dexter Aquatic Center, free of charge, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. for race participants and their families. General pool rules will still apply at the Aquatic Center and children 7 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

The registration fee is $20 through June 19, and participants can choose the 5K Run/Walk, 1-mile walk, or show support as a “virtual runner.” Those registering by June 19 are guaranteed a T-shirt. Beginning June 20, the fee increases to $25 and you are not guaranteed a T-shirt. Registration forms can be found at

Strollers are welcome; children ages 10 and younger must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older.
