Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run

Sunday, May 15, 2022 | Downtown Indianapolis

Indiana's youngest runners are hitting the street during the Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run. This non-competitive fun run allows children ages 3 – 10 the fun opportunity to get active and experience the excitement of a running event, complete with a start and finish line production, cheering section, participant bib, and finisher medal.

The Rookie Run will take place at Kids’ Day, Indiana's largest free outdoor festival for kids! The Salesforce and JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Kids' Day attracts thousands to Monument Circle on May 15, featuring over 40 exhibitors and tons of fun, educational and interactive activities. Kids' Day will take place from noon – 4 p.m.

Rookie Run Details

Rookie Run takes place in downtown Indianapolis, one block north of Monument Circle at Ohio and Meridian streets. A course map can be viewed here.
