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.

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