Entry Description
Registration is open for the Patoka Lake Sprint Triathlon on Aug. 24.

All proceeds will support Patoka’s non-releasable raptors — a red-tailed hawk and Eastern screech owl — which are used for education. Proceeds may also help Patoka acquire a non-releasable eagle for the raptor education program.

The triathlon is a 500 yard swim in the lake, a 12.8 mile bike on paved roads within the reservoir property and a 5K run on gravel roads and a paved bike trail. It will be at the Patoka Lake beach. Participants must be 15 or older.

Registration costs between $30 and $40 per person, or $80 for a team. Racers should register early to pay the lower cost. Additional information, including how to register, is at PatokaTriathlon.dnr.IN.gov.
