Iron Eagle Paddle & Run set for May 11

The Eagle Creek Park Foundation will host the inaugural Iron Eagle Paddle & Run, a 14K multi-sport race and fundraiser, May 11 at Eagle’s Crest in Eagle Creek Park, 7201 Fishback Road, Indianapolis.

Participants of all ages can venture through one of the nation’s largest city-owned parks, by land and water, alternating between trail runs and 1.25-mile canoe, kayak, or rowboat legs.

“The park is a playground for athletes,” Michael Davis, vice president of the Eagle Creek Park Foundation, said in a press release. “It’s the perfect place to merge sports in a challenge that Indy has never seen before.”

The race format starts at the Eagle’s Crest and consists of a 1.25-mile trail run to boats, 1.25-mile paddle to the Eagle Creek Park beach, 5K trail run, 1.25-mile paddle back to the westside, and 1.25-mile trail run back to the Crest.

“In an effort to protect the park, we’re keeping the course as natural as possible,” Davis said. Without the threat of extreme obstacles, he said, “we just leave the battle against nature up to you.”

Competitors have the choice to enter as an individual or team in three divisions: kayak (one or two person), canoe (two or three person), or single/double sculling rowboat (one or two person). Racers will need to bring their own kayak, canoe, or rowboat. Life jackets are required.
