Mini Marathon 2013

The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon is the nation's largest half-marathon, selling out 35,000 participants for the past 11 years. We’re lucky to have this amazing event right in our backyard. Runners come from around the world to run the 13.1 mile course from downtown Indianapolis to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, around the 2.5 mile track and back downtown to the finish line.

If you're running the Mini-Marathon this year, we're cheering you on! In support of healthy training and fitness, we're asking, "Why do you run the Mini-Marathon?"
