INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - If you've ever wanted to kick a field goal at Lucas Oil Stadium or shoot a basket at Banker's Life Fieldhouse, Saturday might be your lucky day.

There's an adventure race in Indy that includes those things and many more. The second annual Indy Ultimate is a seven-mile course that people can run or walk through. Then along the way, there are challenges you can try out. You can race to be competitive, but many will opt to enjoy the scenery and their experience doing a lot of really cool things.

Here's a complete list of Indy Ultimate Course activities:

  • Kick a soccer goal at Michael A. Carroll Stadium, home of the Indy Eleven
  • Run the bases at Victory Field where participants will see themselves running on the brand new video board
  • Kick a field goal at Lucas Oil Stadium and get to run on the field through the inflatable horse tunnel with participant names announced over the PA - just like the Colts do on game day
  • Georgia Street will feature an Indianapolis Motor Speedway activation
  • Complete a skills challenge (bounce pass, dribble through cones, then shoot a basket) at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers' "High Octane" drumline will also be on-site providing music
  • Take a lap around Monument Circle on The HandleBar where our friends at Emmis will have a photo station on-site and provide music from B1070 The Fan
  • Go up and down the stairs at the Indiana War Memorial
  • Face an obstacle course at American Legion Mall with men and women from the Indiana National Guard "cheering" everyone on
  • Cross over the Glick Peace Walk on Walnut Street
  • Go through the Canal Walk featuring the Indianapolis School of Ballet dancers and musical performances by Circle City Steel, The DoleBecks, Protocol and The Tides of Play! - an interactive percussion installation where participants become the musicians
  • Final stop is at the Indiana State Museum where participants will run up the main staircase, participate in an interactive mural and take pictures with Abraham Lincoln, Raggedy Ann, Johnny Appleseed, among others
  • Cross the finish line at Military Park and receive a finishers medal
  • Get a free Dos Equis beer at the post-race party and jam to the tunes of DJ Lockstar, among many other great activities to celebrate conquering Indy
