500 Festival Mini Marathon **** CANCELLED ****

Sat 05-08 7:30am - 2:00pm

2021 marks the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon’s 45th running, HOWEVER .... it will be VIRTUAL again this year.

Out of concern for the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, medical providers, staff, and community, the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K will transition to a fully virtual event and will not be conducted as an in-person event this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can read more here.

Like all of you, we were very hopeful and excited to return to the traditional OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon experience this year and to once again produce the Greatest Spectacle in Running.

We worked closely with health officials, medical experts, and community leaders to develop plans to ensure the safety of all volunteers, participants, staff, spectators, and surrounding communities. But after extensive evaluation, it was determined that the 500 Festival would not be able to host the Indy Mini in its traditional, in-person format. While a virtual #IndyMini is different than an in-person race experience, the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K still allows us to share in the excitement of individual triumphs and be a part of a larger community celebration.

Although the 2021 OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon will not take on the traditional format of needing volunteers to execute the in-person event, we are planning to provide virtual volunteer opportunities.

The 500 Festival Virtual Volunteer Program, presented by Citizen’s Energy Group, will provide meaningful ways for volunteers to contribute to the mission of the 500 Festival - from signing up to participate in our events and programs, to sharing our content on social media, and everything in between - we hope you’ll join us for the Virtual Volunteer Program!

We will continue to provide additional details and information on virtual opportunities for our volunteers, stay tuned! As always, thank you for your support of the 500 Festival.

Be well,

- The 500 Festival
