Last updated on Saturday, April 27, 2013

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

Head for the hills and race for a cause.

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.

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.

Register within the next 30 days for a chance to win a free one-night cabin rental near the Patoka Lake entrance for the night before the race! Visit http://
