Officials for the Indiana Invaders track and running club and the city of Indianapolis announced yesterday that a championship cross-country course and training venue will be developed along the banks of the White River downtown, according to a report by the Indianapolis Business Journal. Ground was broken this week. The 20-acre development, which includes a parcel behind the Michael A. Carroll Track & Soccer Stadium on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis and another between 10th and 16th streets along Fall Creek Parkway, will include two international championship cross-country courses and additional trails connecting the courses. It'll be called the Indiana Cross Country Arena at White River State Park.
Note: these Indiana Invaders are a field & track team, not to be confused with Indiana Invaders of South Bend, a soccer team founded in 1998.
