Crossroads Marathon & Mini Marathon
Northwest Indiana's first marathon launches from Freedom Park on April 27, 2014. Taking place entirely over scenic country roads, the Crossroads Marathon passes by Cedar Lake, Lake Dale, and at least one camouflaged bigfoot. The course is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon and is open to everyone—walkers included—as long as they can sustain a 15-minute mile pace.
