As the name suggests, the impact of the Ripple Effect is felt throughout the community. Proceeds from the event benefit the Broad Ripple Village Association, a nonprofit focused on enriching the community, attracting investment, amplifying public spaces, and improving quality of life. By participating, you will help fund important BRVA programs, including: public safety, beautification, and lighting, among many others. These programs ensure that Broad Ripple continues to be a safe and attractive place for people to live, work, and visit.

Participants may get their race materials on race day from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Pick-up location TBD.

Parking is available at the Broad Ripple parking garage (6280 N College Ave).

Awards will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers.

Stick around after you finish for some post-race celebrating! There will be a variety of vendors present, giveaways and raffles. All participants over the age of 21 are invited to grab 2 FREE beers. Not a beer drinker? No problem! We’ll have lots of other refreshments to help you re-hydrate.

Event organizers need assistance at the registration table, water stations, and along the course. Volunteers will receive a complimentary T-shirt! If interested, email Garrett Lawton.
