Rookie Run

Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run


The smallest runners have the biggest hearts

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 Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run takes place in downtown Indianapolis, one block north of Monument Circle at Ohio and Meridian streets. Run distances are set based upon a child’s age and all participants will receive a goodie bag, a participant bib and a finisher's medal - just like the Indy Mini participants!
