The Legacy Loop 5K Run/Walk is a fan event of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl. Created to showcase many of the development and restoration projects that have taken place on Indianapolis’ Near Eastside, the Legacy Loop 5K Run/Walk will be one of the opening events to the Super Bowl XLVI festivities. The event starts and finishes at Arsenal Technical High School and participants will run past homes, a community center and commercial buildings renovated as part of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl’s legacy. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finishers in different age groups. There will also be a scavenger hunt along the route. If you find a football, you’ll win a prize! Proceeds will benefit the ongoing Near Eastside Super Bowl Legacy Project.
After the race, be sure to check out the free HealthBowl inside the gyms of Arsenal Technical High School. HealthBowl is an interactive health fair from 9a.m. to 2p.m. that will have NFL players, fun fitness activities, health screenings and much more.

Windsor Park Neighborhood Association will meet at 10am at 12th/Arsenal. We’ll host a “cheer station” – People cheering, waving signs, bull horns, cow bells, etc. It’s a great way to familiarize people with our neighborhood and show some spirit!
Neighbors should also be aware of traffic disruptions the morning of the 5k event. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
