Downtown Indy, Inc.’s Brickyard Pit Stop Paddle

Businesses, friends and/or families are forming teams of eight to race in pedal boats on a portion of the Canal. The goal is to have 16 or more teams participate.

Races will start at 5 p.m. and are structured with four team members starting near the Ohio Street bridge, pedaling and paddling to the New York Street bridge to switch places with the four remaining team members to race back to the start. The single-elimination bracket will narrow down Indy’s best and culminate in a championship race between the top two teams. The event should conclude by 6:30 p.m.

The winning team receives the Grand Prize: 16 tickets to the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line race (Sept. 9), eight Wheel Fun Rentals pedal boat rides and bragging rights.

All spectators are invited to come to the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center – Canal level (Brickyard Pit Stop Paddle HQ) for DJ Mr. Kinetik, food options from Hoaglin To Go and a bar from 4:30 – 7 p.m.

Registration for Downtown Indy, Inc.’s Brickyard Pit Stop Paddle is $80/team (or $70 for Downtown Indy, Inc. members using code DIIMEMBER). Teams are comprised of eight members. All proceeds benefit Downtown beautification and décor.
