Why did the 3-Miler (February 5, 2022) get canceled?Due to snow and ice conditions on the route, the 500 Festival canceled the 3-Miler event scheduled for Saturday, February 5, which is part of the 500 Festival Miler Series, presented by OrthoIndy. The safety of our participants, spectators, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. After much effort from the event team and city, we determined the route would be too dangerous for a walking and running event.
While we are saddened, we can’t hold this event in-person, 3-Miler participants are still able to complete their race virtually and will be notified via email with next steps. Participants may complete the 3-Miler and submit their results online anytime between Feb. 4-Feb 13. Podium Series participants can still pick up their shirt at the 6-Miler on March 5.
