Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K

Saturday, May 6, 2023

Indianapolis, Indiana

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 mileage is shorter than the #IndyMini, 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-Marathon, it includes tons of entertainment along the route, and the incomparable Post Race Party, featuring live entertainment and high fives galore.

Race Information

  • Time: 7:00 am ET
  • Start Line Location: Washington Street & S West Street, Downtown Indianapolis (same Start & Finish Line as the Indy Mini)
  • For the safety of all participants, the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K will carry a strict 56-minute time limit for completion.
