B&O Express 5K/10K Run & Walk

Description

The Chamber Challenge is ON!

Join us for the 5th annual B&O Express 5K/10K Run & Walk at Indiana University Health West Hospital:

 

Saturday, September 14
IU Health West Hospital
Packet Pickup: 7 am
10K Start: 8 am

 

Whether you run for fun and fitness or race competitively, the B&O Express 5K/10K is the ideal event for runners and walkers who want to support continued development of the B&O Trail across Hendricks County and beyond. Both the 5K and 10K routes are challenging, but not so challenging that novice runners can’t experience the thrill of crossing the finish line to the cheers of event supporters and volunteers. The 10K course lets runners get a taste of the trail for about a half a mile in the easternmost section of Hendricks County.

In addition to the two races, the B&O Express offers free health screenings in the “Health Depot,” free refreshments in the “Dining Car,” free trackless train rides for the kids and live music.  All that, plus a commemorative t-shirt for just $20.

And new this year, the B&O Express will host an athletic shoe drive for Soles4Souls, which donates new and gently used shoes to natural disaster victims. Look for donation bins on site race day.

Online registration is now open at botrail.org. Packet pick up begins at 7 am, with the 10K race starting just after 8 am. The 5K run begins approximately 30 minutes after the 10K runners have hit the course.
