2017 Relay Downtown Canal - June 10, 2017

Downtown Canal

On Saturday, June 10, 2017, Indy Runners will be holding an informal relay (free for club members!) along the downtown Indianapolis canal and picnic. We'll team people up in 3-person teams of varying paces for a "fun relay" with our base at the American College of Sports Medicine green space (same as Run the Monon). Each participant will run 2 laps (roughly 3 miles per lap). Get the full details!

Come Enjoy Our Club Runs and Walks

Club RunIndy Runners offers several club runs and walks each week. These runs occur year-round, including right now! We have a Sunday run at Ft. Harrison, Tuesday run at Hinkle Fieldhouse, Wednesday run and walk at the downtown Atheneaum YMCA, Thursday run in Broad Ripple, and a Saturday run and walk in Broad Ripple. If you haven't made it out to a weekly club run or walk in a while (or ever), we invite you to come out and join us!

Spring Shoe Drive & Volunteer Opportunity for Changing Footprints

It's time for spring cleaning! Indy Runners will be collecting shoes for Changing Footprints, a 501c3 organization that donates shoes to 60 local agencies and 17 countries. Donations are tax deductible and ALL shoes (including heels, boots, flip flops, slippers, cleats, etc.) in ANY condition will be accepted. Unwearable shoes will be used to make playgrounds and artificial fields - no shoe gets wasted! Look for the bin at one of our weekly group runs. Don't forget to tie laced shoes together!
Following the drive, we will have a volunteer day at Changing Footprints to sort and box shoes for distribution - stay tuned for date and time! Contact with questions. Happy donating!
