The 500 Festival mini-mini is the first and only youth-run to take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Designed specifically for kids, the 500 Festival mini-mini provides Indiana’s youth with an “Indy Mini” experience that’s sized just for them. The 2nd annual 500 Festival mini-mini will take place on Sunday, September 17, 2017, and is open to children ages 5 – 12.
Kids participating in the mini-mini will experience the larger-than-life fun of a 500 Festival running event – complete with course entertainment, massive cheering sections, participant timing and the coveted mini-mini medal. Five different race distances will be offered, ranging from half a mile to 2.5 miles, allowing participants to select the race that best meets their age and ability. All participants will start from pit lane and will finish at the famed Yard of Bricks.
