Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run
The smallest runners, the biggest hearts
All kids, ages 3-10, are invited to join us for the Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run. It’s a non-competitive fun run where everyone goes away a winner. The Rookie Run, which complements the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, is a great way for kids to stay physically fit. It takes place in downtown Indianapolis, one block north of Monument Circle at Ohio and Meridian streets. All participants will receive a goodie bag, a runners bib with the number 1, and a finisher's medal – just like the Mini-Marathon participants. Pre-register at the special package price to be guaranteed a commemorative technical t-shirt. Registration and shirts will be sold separately on event day.
