Come to the 13th consecutive Hellbender Hustle 5K Run/Walk at the O’Bannon Woods State Park in Corydon, Indiana to learn more about hellbenders and how they are faring in the nearby Blue River. The race is part road, part trail, and fun for the whole family. After crossing the finish line, enjoy the outstanding refreshments that are a hallmark of this event. Awards will be given to top finishers and there will be a drawing for a handcrafted door prize, made exclusively for the Hellbender Hustle. And if running/walking a 5K isn’t your thing, come and take a look at the Nature Center exhibits or just kick back and relax and listen to the sounds of a local traditional band.
