The 500 Festival Mini-Marathon Expo is the exciting start to Mini-Marathon weekend in Indianapolis! Held in downtown Indianapolis, the Mini-Marathon Expo features interactive activities and exhibitors for all ages. The Expo is free and open to the public and a great opportunity for everyone to enjoy the excitement of the Mini-Marathon.
All participants (Indy Mini & 5K) are required to pick up race materials (bib / timing device, participant shirt, gear check bag) at the Expo. There is no race day packet pick-up. Race packets will not be mailed to you. You must have your bib number (found on the confirmation email you will receive in April) to receive your race packet. If you forget your bib number, you can look it up when you get to the Expo. You must have a photo ID to lookup your bib number at the Expo. You may pick up a packet for a friend. Please make sure you have their bib number and a copy of their photo ID.
