Southwestway Park is located in the Southwest corner of Indianapolis. Within it lies the tallest hill in the city: Mann Hill. It’s a very spectator-friendly course with an ideal variety of fast riding, technical riding, and climbing. The first mile is generally uphill and wide enough for passing at almost every point.
MIGHTY TITAN OBSTACLE COURSE:
DINO partners with Mighty Titan Adventures for an obstacle course event for kids (about 1/2 mile long). There are both competitive race waves and non-competitive waves, and an all-day pass option. The course will tentatively be open between 8:30am and noon. Register HERE for the Mighty Titan course.
