Forest Park and Forest Park Aquatic Center will host a multi-dimensional event featuring something for every age and fitness level on Aug. 17. The inaugural Noblesville Fit Fest is being presented by Gordon Insurance and staged by America Multi-Sport.
“This unique festival and race event combination promises to be a boon to the entire Hamilton County community with the goals of encouraging our friends and neighbors to adopt a healthier lifestyle,” Fit Fest Coordinator Kym Flannery said.
Fit Fest events, which are USAT sanctioned events, include a Sprint Triathlon (400 yard swim, 20.6K bike and 5K run), Sprint Duathlon (1K run, 20.6K bike and 5K run), Sprint Aquabike (400 meter swim and 20.5K bike), 5K Run/Walk (3.1 Miles), Kids Aquathon (ages 4-6, 7-11 and 12-14), and a Sprint Aquathon (400m swim and 5k run). Events begin at 8 a.m.
Want to participate but have little ones? Flannery said the races have something no other Triathlon event she’s heard of offers: a “Kids Corral” featuring licensed teachers from the Goddard School of Noblesville providing age appropriate activities for children ages three and up.
“Put one foot in front of the other and make a difference,” Rebecca Gordon of Gordon Insurance said.
Each event has a fee and Gordon said all proceeds will be donated to the Riverview Hospital Foundation.
“We all live here and if we ever end up there, I want to know they have what they need,” Gordon said.
“We’re so excited the Gordon family is dedicated to continuing to support and be philanthropic to Riverview,” Trish Oman, Riverview Hospital Foundation director, said. “Fit Fest ties in very nicely. The hospital is about wellness and keeping people healthy and fit.”
When the athletes get to the finish line, they and their families can enjoy a family-friendly, fitness-oriented festival featuring a “Vendor Village.” In addition to the healthy food, beverage, product and service offerings, guests can check out the “How To” stage sponsored by Sparta where the curious can observe and try out all manner of fitness activities.
