Indiana State Universities Blue & White Parade takes place this Saturday morning from 9am-11am at 9th + Cherry, Wabash, & 5th. The homecoming parade is one of the most popular tradition at Indiana State University. Hundreds of spectators from the Terre Haute community gather to showcase their sycamore spirit. It is a great way to get everyone pumped in time for the homecoming game. We encourage everyone to be apart of the parade as it will not disappoint.

Indiana State takes on Youngstown St. for their homecoming game this Saturday at 1pm at Memorial Stadium.

WVRR’s Run the Parks Challenge is a virtual race series that encourages runners and walkers to get out and enjoy the parks that Terre Haute has to offer. WVRR is teaming up with the Vigo County Parks Departments to put this race on.
Participants will receive a super soft hoodie, a finisher medal, and all the glory that comes with completing this challenge! First and second place awards will be given to age groups as well. Runners and walkers must keep records of their runs. Proof of times may be requested for age group awards.
Participants in the challenge will have from October 23 – November 29 to complete all five courses in the various parks.
The parks included are:
Wabashiki Wetlands (6 mi/ 3 mi)
Griffin Bike Park (4 mi/1.2 mi)
Prairie Creek Park (6 mi/1 mi)
Fowler Park (3.7 mi/1.3 mi)
Hawthorn Park (4.5 mi/1.5 mi)
Participants can participate in one of three races offered:
The Lite Challenge: Participants in this challenge will run the short course at each park. These courses will range 1-3 miles in length. This would be a great opportunity for participants to participate with the entire family, or those just beginning their journey in the world of running/walking.
The Challenge: Participants in this challenge will run courses varying from 3-7 miles in length. Participants should note that ALL of these runs will be on trails. This IS a challenge!
The ULTRA Challenge: This one is not for the faint of heart! This challenge is for runners that are looking into putting in some serious mileage in a short amount of time. Runners in this challenge will have 48 hours to complete all 5 courses (runners must respect the hours of the park). Participants in this challenge will have to show proof of their runs (with the date and time) using screenshots of their running apps.
Here’s how it works: Choose your distance! When you are registering, you will need to decide if you want to take the “long courses” or the “short courses.” Once you commit to a course, you must stick with it for the duration of the challenge. After you register, you will receive an email with course maps and descriptions.
Learn the courses! When you register, you will be emailed maps of each park’s course. You can complete the courses in any order. While the courses will be marked and checked multiple times during the week, WVRR cannot guarantee that signs and chalk marks will be visible. If you notice markings missing, please let us know! It is the participants responsibility to know the course.
Race the courses! Get out to the parks and GO. Take the family, meet a small group of friends, and enjoy the amazing parks that Terre Haute has to offer. The start/finish lines will be marked with a WVRR sign. Chalk dots will mark turns and will line some of the course to help guide participants.
Upload your times! When you finish a run, you will need to go back to RunSignUp to put in your times. You will need to keep evidence of your runs. Runners/walkers may be asked for screenshots or pictures of GPS watches if an award is won. While we hope and expect that participants will be honest, well… Don’t forget to keep some type of record of your run. No fancy GPS watch? No problem! All you need is a smartphone! There are several free apps you can add to your smartphone to track your runs. Check out Runkeeper, MapMyRun, Nike+, Strava, Runtastic, Endomondo, or RunGo. ANY app will do. You will just need an app that will show the distance you ran and the time.
Check the leaderboards! See how you are doing in comparison to other runners in your age groups. Remember, this is a RACE! Get competitive. Awards will be given based on the total combined race times of all five parks.
Post your races! Share your runs on our Facebook/Instagram pages. #wvrrRuntheParks
