Week eleven of the Summer Fun Run Series takes us to Talon Stream Park in Plainfield, Indiana.  Talon Stream Park is located just north of the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center.  Talon Stream is a 3.00 mile loop with an out and back starting and finishing at the Talon Stream shelter.  Participants begin clockwise around the 1/2 mile Talon Stream loop behind the shelter.  After completing the loop, participants head south following the path behind Splash Island.  Participants then turn south onto the Vandalia Trail and remain on the trail until crossing the Town of Plainfield bridge reaching the turn around at Bicentennial Plaza.  From there, participants return to the start/finish following the same route back.
