The 2021 Flap Jacks 5K is scheduled for July 31, 2021, and advertising opportunities have been compiled for what will be a community celebration of the 6th year for this event! This spring, the event committee will begin its outreach for this event and will be promoting it to the various neighborhood organizations and through the media and social media outlets.
Over the past six years, the Flap Jacks 5K Walk/Run has raised funds to purchase land and support connectivity and expansion of the B&O Trail, which, in 2021, also included the White Lick Creek & Vandalia Trail. This has been a part Indy Gateway’s our mission because we believe that westside residents deserve amenities, such as trails that improve their quality of life. We are currently working to provide the required match through some exciting grant opportunities through Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Trail grants. Additionally, we’re helping to conduct scoping studies for trail development. The goal is to fill the gap through the Far West B&O Trail Association’s expansion of the portion just inside Marion County (east from the Hendricks County) and to the Farley neighborhood, thereby connecting over Eagle Creek to Speedway Trails. Indy Gateway has also turned its focus to trails near the Bridgeport area on the far west side of Indianapolis. We are working to facilitate development and support for the Vandalia Trail and the White Lick Creek Greenway in Marion County.
The event continues to grow, thanks in large part to our sponsors. Approximately 400 participants are expected in 2021! Please consider sponsoring our event this year.
