My #IndyMini Story: To Win Dinner with Meb Keflezighi

U.S. Olympian and Boston Marathon Winner Meb Keflezighi will be running the 2016 OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon!


Widely acclaimed as one of the greatest runners of our time, Meb is the only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon, the Boston Marathon, and an Olympic medal. Beyond his athletic achievements, Meb is passionate about inspiring individuals of all ages and athletic abilities to achieve their personal best. With that commitment in mind, the record setting runner will not start at the front of the Indy Mini with the other elite athletes. Instead, Meb will serve as the official starter for Wave 1 and Wave 2, then he will start his race at the very back of the Mini-Marathon, to ensure all participants in the 2016 Indy Mini have the opportunity to run or walk with him.

To celebrate Meb’s participation, any Mini-Marathon participants who have registered before January 31 will be entered to win a VIP dinner with Meb Keflezighi and other elite athletes on Friday, May 6th.

  1. This literally made me cry. What a wonderful person! I’ve lived in Indiana all my life and always knew about the Mini. It was always a pipe dream for me but honestly so was any race. I weighed in December 301 pounds. After losing my fifth baby to miscarriage, and being 37 years old, something had to give. I’m proud to say that I’ve lost over 20 pounds and am excelling at my training schedule. I am so EXCITED to be able to say I ran with an Olympian. I hope I can catch a glimpse! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  2. I’m Mr. Meb’s biggest fan. Standing at six feet ten inches tall. Go Meb go!! 225 miles in 7 days! That’s the title of Meb’s dad’s next book (written in his native language and English). I had a dream about that title…#1 seller.
