Our Events

The SWINT Board works with many local individuals and organizations to host events year-round on the Wabash Trace.  If you are interested in holding an event on the trail, whether a 5k, fun-run, bike ride, or anything else you can dream up, please contact us.  While the trail is open to the public, we do need to make sure that the use of the trail for events is consistent and provides for the safety and enjoyment of all trail users.  Events listed to the right have been approved by our board, and those below are organized by the Wabash Trace.  If you are interested in holding an event on the Wabash Trace, please email

2024 Event info coming soon!
