Patoka Lake sprint triathlon Aug. 24
Registration is open for the Patoka Lake Triathlon scheduled to take place Saturday, Aug. 24, at Patoka Lake beach.
The race will begin at 8:30 a.m. and is for ages 15 and older.
All proceeds from this event will go to support Patoka’s non-releasable raptors: a red-tailed hawk and eastern screech owl. With help, the organization may also be able to save the life of a bald eagle by acquiring a non-releasable eagle for Patoka’s raptor education program.
The triathlon consists of swimming 500 yards in the lake, biking 12.8 miles along paved roads within the property and running a 5K along groomed gravel roads and a paved bike trail.
