2021 500 Festival mini-mini
Registration will open July!

The 500 Festival mini-mini is the only kids run to take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The mini-mini is a timed fun run designed specifically for kids and provides Indiana’s youth with an experience similar to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. The 500 Festival mini-mini provides a fun, accessible activity for kids to learn the basics of running.

On Sunday, August 29, Indiana's youngest runners will take over the world’s largest sporting venue, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

Kids participating in the mini-mini will experience the larger-than-life fun of a 500 Festival running event – complete with course entertainment, cheering sections, and the coveted mini-mini medal. The mini-mini features four different race distances: .5 mile, 1-mile, 2-miles, or 3-miles - allowing participants ages 5-12 to select the race that best meets their age and ability. All races will finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s famed Yard of Bricks.

All mini-mini participants attend packet pickup, hosted at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Pagoda Plaza, before their race. Kids will receive a goodie bag, a runner's bib with a timing device, and a participant shirt. At the conclusion of their race, participants receive a finisher's medal and the opportunity to go through runner’s services after finishing their race.

It's MORE than a race experience...
Participants and spectators can enjoy the mini-mini’s Celebration Zone before and after their race. The Celebration Zone will feature fun, interactive activities for children of all ages and a wide range of exhibitors who believe in the importance of a healthy lifestyle for Indiana’s youth.
