Virtual 500 Festival mini-mini

The 2022 500 Festival mini-mini kids’ run, set to take place on August 21, is now entirely virtual

Traditionally, the 500 Festival mini-mini kids’ run draws hundreds of young runners and cheering fans to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This year, the virtual mini-mini will continue to provide Indiana’s youth with a memorable running experience - from anywhere! This event is recommended for kids ages 5-12.

Participants in the virtual #indyminimini may now complete their race distance wherever they choose between August 14-31.

The virtual mini-mini features four different race distances, ranging from half a mile to 3 miles, allowing participants to select the race distance that best meets their age and ability. Participants will receive a commemorative shirt, finisher medal, drawstring bag, a digital customizable race bib, and finisher certificate!

Online registration closed on August 28.

Registered participants received communication via email on 8/4/2022 about their options and next steps.
The deadline for currently registered mini-mini participants to make their selection is 11:59 p.m. EST on August 28.
