Our Mission 

Have you ever stood in a corral with 30,000 runners who are toeing the starting line ready to run 13.1 miles as fast as possible?  There is an energy permeating the crowd that is unmistakable.  You can feel it.  It’s electric.

Have you ever ran your hands over the individual letters of an engraving at a memorial as you discover the name of a family member?  The knowledge that their courage and sacrifice will be revered by generations to come is un-parrelled.  It's humbling.

Have you ever sat in an airplane with a parachute strapped to your back as the jumpmaster opens the door?  You can feel the wind hitting your face as you look at the world from above the clouds.  The mixture excitement, fear, and adrenaline overwhelms your senses.  It's intoxicating. 

Have you ever driven nails into two-by-fours as dozens of volunteers work in unison to build a home for a family in need?  You can feel a connection with the project knowing that what you are doing will change someone’s life.  It’s inspiring.  

These descriptions invoke thoughts of challenging physical preparation, exhaustive planning, expensive equipment, and impossible time commitments.  Thoughts of experiences that are beyond the reach of the average person.  This could not be further from the truth.  At 3 Day Weekend we believe that every time you step out of your door you encounter opportunities to experience amazing adventures. 

Our mission is to connect you with those adventures.

The Executive Team 

  • Joseph Fiega Chief Adventure Officer Email: joe.fiega@3dayweekend.com
    Social Media:

    Joe's life of adventure started long before his tenth birthday. Much to his mother’s dismay he would jump the fence in his backyard to explore the alleys around his neighborhood collecting rocks and other trinkets. In the 20+ years since that time he has explored three continents, ran marathons, summited mountains, jumped out of airplanes, roofed houses for the needy, and broken trail in some of the most picturesque wildernesses in the United States. To this day, Joe still collects rocks and trinkets from nearly every adventure.

    Joe is a founding member of 3 Day Weekend and is tasked with managing the overall strategy and performance of the organization.  Prior to founding 3 Day Weekend Joe spent 10+ years leading organizations in senior level Project Management and Information Technology roles.  He also holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Purdue University's College of Technology as well as a MBA from Anderson University. 

    In recent months Joe has shown a minor obsession with hiking to the basecamp of Mount Everest "just to size it up" and searching for long lost treasures from American History.  It's a safe bet that his next adventure will involve one or the other.

    Allen did not catch the endurance sport bug until his late twenties. Prior to that point he spent his free time playing football, hitting the weights, or joining in on pick-up basketball games whenever the opportunity presented itself. He was a stereotypical weekend warrior. All that changed in 2007 when a friend dared him to run a half marathon. Allen set his sights on the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon in Indianapolis and hasn't looked back since. After completing a full marathon, a half Ironman, a Tough Mudder, and dozens of half marathons Allen has discovered a passion for endurance sports that he insists will be part of his life forever.

    Allen is a founding member of 3 Day Weekend and is tasked with managing the financial aspects of the organization.  Allen brings more than seven years of experience in corporate accounting, certifications as a professional account (CPA), and an undergraduate degree from Purdue's renowned Krannert School Of Management.  Allen also serves on the board of directors for Camptown, an Indianapolis based not-for-profit which provides youth with opportunities to learns teamwork, leadership, and other critical skills through experiential adventure programs in the great outdoors.  

    When Allen is not providing his financial wisdom to 3 Day Weekend there is a good chance he is out rallying his friends and family to participant in a Friday morning pick up basketball game, the latest mud run, a polar plunge, or a fundraising event that will benefit a local charity or religious organization.
