Registration Open For Patoka Lake Triathlon

Last updated on Thursday, April 18, 2013

(PATOKA) - Registration is now open for the Patoka Lake Triathlon taking place at Patoka Lake beach on Saturday, August 24th.

All proceeds from this event will go to support Patoka's non-releasable raptors; a red-tailed hawk and eastern screech owl.

With your help, we may also be able to save the life of a bald eagle by acquiring a non-releasable eagle for Patoka's raptor education program. Participants will swim 500 yards in the lake.

Bike 12.8 miles along paved roads within the property. Run 5K along groomed gravel roads and a paved bike trail. If participants register within the next 30 days they will have a chance to win a free one-night cabin rental near the Patoka Lake entrance for the night before the race.
