Description

You won't want to miss this twist on a typical race. It will be fun and challenging for everyone. Run it. Jog it. Walk it. Do it individually, with friends or as a family group - be as competitive as you like!

What is the twist?

First, the route will be unmarked. Instead there will be checkpoints to visit. The location of the checkpoints will be identified on a map given to you at the start. It is up to you to determine the fastest route between the checkpoints. The fastest route may not be the shortest. As a result, the distance depends on the route choices you make, so the expected winning distance will be about 8.0K (or about 4.0K for the shorter course).

Second, the course will have two loops. Everyone will run both loops but just in a different order.

The course will be on paved paths, paved trails, roads, sidewalks, grass fields, and, if you think it is the fastest route, then through some woods.

This is a fundraiser for the U20 orienteers involved in the Junior National Program. There are 40 juniors in the program in the US and 2 of those are in Indiana.

$25 for adults; $15 for those 13-18 years old; $5 for those 7-12 years old; and free for those 0-6 years old

Net proceeds will help the juniors fund travel to training camps, attend the junior team trials, and cover expenses associated with the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Portugal in July 2021.

9:00 am - Registration packet pick-up begins
10:30 pm - Pre-race informational meeting for all participants
11:00 pm - Mass start

Everyone will get to keep the map they used for the race. Each year the course will be different from all previous Twisted Runs.

Day of Race Registration

You will be able to register on the day of the race. The cost will be $30 for either the 6K or the 3K.

Run with a Friend

Running with a friend or two is a great way to experience the Twisted Run. If you plan to do this, then first, register; second, click the Questions? button; third notify the registrar of the names of the people in your group.

Kids under 12 are advised to run with a parent for at least the first 3 checkpoints until they get comfortable navigating with a map.
