The 500 Festival mini-mini is a fun run designed specifically for kids, providing Indiana’s youth with an experience similar to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, that’s sized just for them. The inaugural 500 Festival mini-mini will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016 and is open to children ages 5 – 12.
