For folks interested in getting in some practice before the June Park-to-Park Relay event in Hendricks Country, the Mini is a perfect opportunity!
The 35,000 runners leave the starting gate (near Washington and West streets) starting at 7:45 a.m. with the last group starting their race about 8:45 a.m. The course for the Mini-Marathon begins near the intersection of Washington and West streets, heads west toward the Indianapolis Motor Speedway along Michigan Street and does a complete lap around the 2.5 mile track before heading back down New York Street to the finish line.
In addition to the runners, there are more than 80 entertainment stations slated to be positioned throughout the course. For more info on the race, please visit http://www.500festival.com/mini-marathon
