Bad Boy Splash and Dash: New Registration Options

The 7th annual Bad Boy Splash and Dash has registration options to fit all ages, fitness levels, and family needs.  Kids 5-18 can swim, run, and splash.  All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt, and entry to the waterpark.  Younger children and families can show their support by registering for the waterpark only option.  This covers their entry to the waterpark and gives them the option to buy a t-shirt to support the Literacy Project.

Proceeds from the Bad Boy Splash and Dash benefit the Ozark Foothills Literacy Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving adults in Independence, Fulton, Sharp, and Izard counties who are learning to read and write or to speak English.  The Literacy Project serves over one hundred students per year in Batesville alone.

This year’s race will be held at the new Batesville Community and Aquatics Center on July 14th.  The Literacy Project has added new registration options to accommodate every age and fitness level.  If you’d like more information on the Splash and Dash, run only, waterpark only registration, or the virtual race, please visit and search “Bad Boy Splash and Dash.”  Official t-shirts are now on sale in the race store.  All donations are welcomed and are tax deductible.
