My kids have loved participating in the Rookie Run for the past 4 years, so when the 500 Festival Mini Mini Marathon was announced, we raced to be a part of the inaugural year. After all, we were no longer “rookies”.

This year, sign your children up to participate in this larger than life experience that’s been created to give the thrill of the BIG mini marathon on an age appropriate level. Five different race distances are available, ranging from half a mile to 2.5 miles, allowing participants to select the race that best meets their age and ability. All participants will start from pit lane and will finish at the famed Yard of Bricks. Did I mention that this all takes place at the world famous, Indianapolis Motor Speedway?

Sign up before September 12 to get the lowest rate ($12 with promo code: IWK). Registration on-site will be $20.

Parents will cheer from the stands and participating children will have the phenomenal experience that comes with being a part of the Mini Mini — course entertainment, massive cheering sections, participant timing and the coveted mini-mini medal.

Before and after the race, there’s plenty of pomp and circumstance for all ages in the Celebration Zone. Last year we met local celebrities and mascots, made spin art, played games, won prizes and had a really nice afternoon with our children.

In addition to the Mini Mini medal, all participants will receive a t-shirt — check out the 2017 design here for the medal and t-shirts.
