Miler Series

500 Festival Miler Series, presented by OrthoIndy

UPDATE: On March 12, Governor Holcomb and the Indiana State Department of Health as well as Mayor Hogsett and the Marion County Department of Health announced restrictions on all non-essential large events to protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19 (the coronavirus). In accordance with these restrictions, the 500 Festival 10-Miler, presented by OrthoIndy, scheduled for April 4, has been canceled.

All 10-Miler registrations have been converted to virtual registrations, so participants can run or walk from anywhere. All submitted results will count toward challenges and/or the full Miler Series. We will ship all Miler Series finisher medals to participants. All registered 10-Miler participants have been emailed instructions for submitting your Virtual 10-Miler race results. If you have any questions, please email us at Thank you for your patience and support!

The 500 Festival Miler Series, presented by OrthoIndy, consists of three different races, a 3-Miler, 6-Miler, and 10-Miler, that start and finish in downtown Indianapolis. The timing of the races coincide with a typical training program for a spring distance race, such as the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. The Miler Series is the perfect opportunity to help you gauge your training progression, practice your race day strategy (hydration, pacing, fueling), meet a running partner, have fun and earn some swag! Not training for a race? These events also provide an opportunity to get moving and accomplish your fitness goals!

Register for the full Miler Series (all 3 races) and you'll receive a gender specific technical shirt and the official Podium Finisher medal, in addition to bragging rights for perfect attendance! You must register for the "Miler Series" of all three races to receive shirt and medal.

Highlights of the 500 Festival Miler Series, presented by OrthoIndy include:

  • Outstanding course support with mile markers, clocks at every mile, split timers, water and Gatorade Endurance Pit Areas and course entertainment
  • Delicious post-race refreshments
  • ChronoTrack B-tag timed race with live runner tracking sign up for friends and family
  • Pacesetters will run the course to help guide you in your training
  • Official results available following the event
  • All events begin and end in downtown Indianapolis
  • Events are open to everyone and you do not have to be registered for the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon to participate
