(BIRDSEYE) - Registration is open for the Patoka Lake Sprint Triathlon, which will start at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 24 at Patoka Lake beach.
All proceeds from this event will go to support Patoka's non-releasable raptors, a red-tailed hawk and eastern screech owl. Officials also hope to save the life of a bald eagle by acquiring a non-releasable eagle for Patoka's raptor education program.
Participants in the sprint triathlon will swim 500 yards in the lake, bike 12.8 miles along paved roads within the property and run a 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 . Visithttp://patokatriathlon.dnr.in.gov for more information.
