Race Headquarters for 2023 is at the National Federation of Fitness and Sport (NIFS). NIFS is three buildings west of the Indiana State Museum - the former host site for Indy Piston in 2021 and 2022. Why did the location change? Several positive benefits!! Here's a few:
1. Indoor restrooms and locker rooms with showers! during NIFS business hours. They are open from 7:00am-5:00pm both Saturday and Sunday.
2. A paved patio for our main aid station to enable us to better accommodate all Indy Piston participants.
3. We determined the most congested area of the old course utilized by other WRSP patrons was right by the Indiana State Museum. Moving to NIFS removes that section of the course to help increase safety and provide a better overall experience for Indy Piston participants.
4. Packet pickup will be at NIFS on Friday evening from 4:00pm-7:00pm. This will allow participants to preview the venue and course layout in the daylight before the race.
Packet pick-up is mandatory and helps give participants more time race morning to set up personal camps. If you are not local, or absolutely cannot make it to pick-up please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have a race morning of option for you.
In the effort to reduce our footprint and single use plastic, we encourage you to bring your own reusable bag to Packet Pick Up. Or just plan to carry out your bib/shirt/etc by hand.
We will be set up on the back patio which is the dark blue square on the map below.
