More Than a Race Experience!
Kids participating in the mini-mini will experience the larger-than-life fun of a 500 Festival running event – complete with course entertainment, cheering sections, and the coveted mini-mini medal. The mini-mini features four different race distances: .5-mile, 1-mile, 2-miles, or 3-miles - allowing participants ages 5-12 to select the race that best meets their age and ability. All races will finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s famed Yard of Bricks.
All in-person mini-mini participants attend packet pickup, hosted at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Pagoda Plaza, before their race. Kids will receive a goodie bag, a runner's bib with a timing device, and a participant shirt. At the conclusion of their race, participants receive a finisher's medal and the opportunity to go through runner’s services after finishing their race.
Fun for the ENTIRE Family
Participants and spectators can enjoy the mini-mini’s Celebration Zone before and after their race. The Celebration Zone will feature fun, interactive activities for children of all ages and a wide range of exhibitors who believe in the importance of a healthy lifestyle for Indiana’s youth.Participate Virtually or In-Person!
