recreate the rookie run experience at home 👟


The Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run is an exciting experience for kids. While we can’t be together to watch all the rookie runners participate during the month of May, you can bring the race experience to your own backyard, a neighborhood sidewalk or a trail! Keep checking back here for digital resources including customizable bibs and finisher certificates!



Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run

All kids, ages 3-10, are invited to join us for the Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run, a non-competitive fun run where everyone goes away a winner! The Rookie Run, which is managed by the same group that produces the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, is a great way to introduce kids to the basics of running and enjoy the excitement of a race - including the start and finish line production, a massive cheering section, a trip through runner's service and the occasional celebrity sighting!

The Smallest Runners Have The Biggest Hearts

The Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run takes place in downtown Indianapolis, one block north of Monument Circle at Ohio and Meridian streets. Race distances are set based upon a child’s age and races will be run in a series of heats to ensure a safe race experience. All participants will receive a goodie bag, a participant bib and a finisher's medal - just like the Indy Mini participants!
