Golf, baseball and fitness rule this spring
No one in Hamilton County should complain that there’s nothing to do this spring. Especially sports fans. Sure, there’s the Men’s NCAA Final Four coming to Indy, but closer to home, there are running races, golf matches, a fitness challenge, archery and baseball, of course. Here are the highlights.

April 18, the fifth annual Carmel Marathon will draw more than runners from across the country, to run a marathon, half-marathon, 8K or 5K beginning and ending at the Carmel City Center.

Prairie View Golf Club in Carmel will host the Great Lakes Valley Conference Men’s Golf Championship April 19-21.  

The Big 10 Women’s Golf Championship will be April 24-26 at The Fort Golf Resort in Lawrence. 

The first pitch of the season flies April 25, for Opening Day of the Fishers-HSE Youth Baseball League. In addition to baseball, there will be live music, children’s activities, food, a silent auction and more at Billericay Park in Fishers. It’s all capped off by a fireworks show.

Who is the strongest of them all? Find out at Project GLOC (Gorgeous Ladies of Crossfit) April 25-26 at Roundtripper Academy in Westfield. More than 400 women will compete in individual and two-member team competitions. 

The GLVC Men’s Baseball Championship is slated May 7-10 at Grand Park in Westfield, where eight teams will compete for a chance to represent the conference at the NCAA Division 2 National Championship.

Scheduled are a variety of events for all ages, including face painting, climbing towers, bounce houses, fire trucks, and much more. It’s not only a fun day, but visitors can meet all the tenants inside the sports complex and try out a variety of activities. Many of the activities are free of charge.
