2020 VIRTUAL Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K
2020 VIRTUAL Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K

The 500 Festival is suspending all planned, in-person events scheduled through May 9, 2020. The 2020 OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K (scheduled for May 2) will NOT take place in-person. The suspension of these events is in accordance with the CDC’s updated guidance to cancel, postpone or provide virtual options for all large events for the next 8 weeks in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

The 500 Festival is doing everything possible to minimize the economic impact and ramifications that will be experienced as a result of canceling these in-person events. If you are registered for the 2020 Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K or Indy Mini, you can learn more about your available options HERE.

Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K


Thousands of runners and walkers will meet their fitness goals (and have a lot of fun) in the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K. Participants in the 5K will run or walk 3.1 miles on a course that weaves throughout downtown Indianapolis. Named one of America's Best 5K races, the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K takes place prior to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon.

While the course is shorter, the experience of the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K is just as rich. The race uses the same start line and finish line as the Mini, includes tons of entertainment along the route and the incomparable Post Race Party, featuring live entertainment and high fives galore.

For the safety of all participants, the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K will carry a strict 56-minute time limit for completion.

5K Participant Shirt & Finisher Medal

The front of the 2020 Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K participant shirt features the official event name largely displayed in the top left corner. Bricks, resembling the famed Brickyard, encircle an IndyCar helmet design from 1945, the year the Hulman-George family purchased the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Uniting the entirety of the design is the state of Indiana in a bright white outline. Giving the shirt a retro sports tee look is the wording, “Three Point One,” the mileage distance of a 5K, which is written at the bottom of the design in a vintage, athletic font. A grunge layer over the whole shirt design contributes to this unique retro look.

This year’s finisher medal for the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K is an antique nickel, square design featuring a laser-etched image of downtown Indianapolis looking from the west on the canal walk. To draw the eye toward the navy and bright green “2020” and “Indianapolis, IN” enamel wording, a portion of the left and bottom of the design has a pattern constructed to add texture and unique depth to the design. Across the top of the medal is “Delta Dental 500 Festival” written in a raised etching with “5K” written beneath it. “5K” is in a larger font with a bright green outline and navy enamel filling to truly showcase the event. The Indianapolis flag filled with navy, white and bright green enamel is located at the bottom right of the medal as an additional nod to the city in which the race takes place. Cut into all of the elements of the medal is the outline of the state of Indiana. It’s a subtle design piece to recognize the greatest state in racing! Flip the medal over and you will find the 500 Festival and Delta Dental logos. There’s also room to have your finish time engraved at the Post Race Party. Holding up your hard earned medal is the iconic checkered flag ribbon with the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K logo on it.
