OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon

30,000+ runners, joggers, walkers and wheelchair racers will take over the streets of downtown Indianapolis for The Greatest Spectacle in Running - the Indy Mini. This epic race starts in the heart of downtown Indianapolis like only we could – with an IndyCar driver leading off each wave in the pace car that will start the Indy 500 later that month. The flat, fast course is packed with thousands of the nicest volunteers you’ll ever meet and nearly 500 course entertainers. What makes the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon even more special is that the course includes a lap around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As participants reach the Speedway’s Yard of Bricks, many will stop to kneel and kiss the bricks. Keep your eyes open, because you never know who you'll see at the Yard of Bricks encouraging participants, from American running hero, Frank Shorter, to Indy 500 racing legends. Man, we love a good tradition.
