Enjoy 2 beautiful rivers and 3 parks along our great route for the 12th annual Dos Rios Splash and Dash 5K which will benefit the New Braunfels Parks Foundation. Two options on the 5K. You can just run the roads or for an additional challenge you can run the roads and tube through the chute! Awards are given for each category of race. You will run from Cypress Bend Park to Prince Solms Park and then back to Cypress Bend Park. For the chute challenge, when you get to Prince Solms park you will grab a tube and float the river through the tube chute. You will then continue the rest of your run. (Yes you will be running with wet shoes unless you take them off prior to the chute.) Tubes are graciously provided by the city of New Braunfels for the Chute Challenge. You do not need to provide your own. 
All entries receive a day pass to the tube chute!


Please Note: This course has various terrains including road, grass and dirt trails through the park. This is not a flat course, please expect some hills. A portion of the road on South Street is caliche due to ongoing construction. There are also small areas of the road on Peace Street where the road may be uneven so please use caution. We also hope you enjoy the different terrains as it provides a well rounded experience for runners/walkers to challenge different muscles and coordination.

Additional Info

At the halfway point, there will be a water stop...which is also at the CHUTE.  If you signed up for the regular 5K, run straight on through. IF you registered for the CHUTE, you will veer right, take your shoes off at a table, grab a tube and go down the chute.  You will need to get out of the river after the chute and back up to the table to retrieve your belongings and finish the race. If you are signed up for the CHUTE, and decide to just do the run without the chute, let a timer know as soon as possible!



Parking is limited at Cypress Bend Park 503 Peace Ave. We have secured additional parking this year across the street at the VFW 600 Peace Ave. You may also park on the right hand side of the road leading up to the park along the fenceline and the end of the park by the VFW. 

PLEASE arrive early to get the closest spots and be aware that the later you arrive, the further away you may have to park and walk. There are some homes on Peace Avenue offering paid parking.
