The Indianapolis 500 Mile Challenge and the Indianapolis Freedom 100 Mile Challenge are the latest fitness initiatives created by the 500 Festival to encourage an active lifestyle outside of the Month of May. The Indy 500 Mile Challenge is a virtual program where participants will complete 500 miles of physical activity between June 22 and December 31, 2020. Not quite ready to take on 500 miles? You also have the option to complete 100 miles of physical activity during the same timeframe in the Indianapolis Freedom 100 Mile Challenge.
The Indy 500 Mile virtual challenge lets you log your mileage anytime, anywhere! Participants can log miles by running, walking, wheelchair, biking, swimming, even fitness classes! This virtual fitness experience allows participants to challenge themselves in a fun, new way. Whether spending these months cross-training for your next OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, or need to jump start your fitness routine, this challenge is the perfect enhancement for all ages and lifestyles.
Participants can select the 500-mile or 100-mile challenge, depending on the amount of mileage they wish to complete. Each option includes a shirt, medal, and other unique goodies! There is even an option to create and join Challenge Teams for additional motivation and encouragement.
Participants can also recruit their friends and family to join! As they refer individuals, they will receive referral perks, such as cash back and free merchandise! Don’t wait to register, the ﬁrst 500 participants will receive a limited-edition shirt, and registration closes after 8,000 participants have signed up.
