Indy Patriot Challenge
Founded as a means of showing support for America’s troops while staying fit, the Indy Patriot Challenge grants runners of all ages a chance to exercise both patriotism and perseverance. Throughout the day, participants take off in staggered starts down a 3-mile course that wends through scenic Hamilton County, climbing and crawling over a variety of patriotic obstacles. After crossing the finish line, attendees can dunk their participation medals in their beers as live music bolsters the event’s festive atmosphere. Dedicated to helping others as well as paying tribute to the nation’s fallen brethren, the Indy Patriot Challenge donates a portion of every registration to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
