Children age 3-10 years old will love the Rookie Run, a non-competitive fun run that takes place as a part of the Salesforce & Chase 500 Festival Kids’ Day. On Saturday, August 8, 2020, children will run, jog and walk on an age appropriate course with other children in their age group. It’s a great day to get out and get those muscles moving.
This event typically takes place in May, but was rescheduled to stay aligned with the rescheduled Indianapolis 500 and other Indy500 events.
Each participant will receive a medal when they finish, wear a #1 racing bib and snag some nutritious snacks at the end of the run.
Advanced registration is $8 per child and includes a commemorative t-shirt. On site registration is $5 per child and a t-shirt can be purchased for an additional $5.
