Hoosier Park 8K Triple Crown CHANGES for 2014

  • Calling all Carmel Marathoners and Half Marathoners!! We are placing 8K timing mats on the marathon and half marathon courses so you can compete in for the overall Triple Crown Series Championship. We heard you and are delivering!

  • Here they come down the stretch! For the Hoosier Park 8K, we want you to give us your race horse name and we will print it on your bib! If you are running on the track, you should be named Secretariat, Man of War, Giacomo, or Nobody's Fault. We will ask you a few week prior to the race so be thinking about it! We hope for some good names!

  • "Casino Cash" given after each event
  • Opportunity to experience the run on the track at Hoosier Park. The participant reviews from the inaugural event were outstanding!
