The KidsFit Program Includes:
The 500 Festival KidsFit Program Final 5K
The 500 Festival KidsFit Program Final 5K is the culmination of the KidsFit Program! The program's Final 5K occurs on the morning of the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, where participants in grades 4 - 6 are invited to Indianapolis to finish their final 3.1 miles in their own wave of the Delta Dental 500 Festival 5K. Students will finish at the same finish line as the 35,000 participants who run the Mini-Marathon each year, complete with grandstands filled with cheering fans and families. KidsFit participants receive a discounted entry as well as a shirt, medal, a trip through runner services, and an experience they’ll never forget! Schools or groups must be registered for the 2022 KidsFit Program to be eligible for the Final 5K.
Students in grades K – 6 can experience the fun and excitement of a 500 Festival running event through a KidsFit Mobile Run. Mobile Runs bring the pageantry and fanfare of a 500 Festival running event to schools around Indiana. Mobile Runs are offered to schools free of charge and the 500 Festival provides all resources, including a start line, finish line, and race décor.
