In 1936, Louis Meyer won the Indianapolis 500. He sped back to Victory Circle to celebrate, and cooled off the only way he knew how... with a bottle of fresh buttermilk. More than 80 years later, the milk bottle has become a staple of victory at the Indianapolis 500, cementing a driver's place in history. So it seemed only fitting that our 20018 Finisher Medal take on the shape of a milk bottle! Defeating 13.1 miles in May is a victory and we're celebrating Indy Mini finishers with a medal that is as unique as our participants. In 2018, all finishers of the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon will join this 80+ year tradition, earning a keepsake that pays homage to one of the most iconic moments in all of sports.
The 2018 Indy Mini medal is the first double-sided medal in the 42-year history of the
OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. It's also the second largest medal the race has ever designed, finishing runner-up to only the Borg-Warner Trophy medal in 2016.
On the front, a raised silver medallion
featuring the Borg-Warner Trophy and the date of the event; May 5, 2018. The medal also
carries a message and signature from one of the greatest American distance runners of all time - Meb Keflezighi. Meb will run in the 2018 OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon
on May 5.
On the back of the medal, a nutrition label highlighting the unique Indy Mini participant facts, including the number of inches, feet, and steps in the Mini-Marathon. These facts pay tribute to the “ingredients” for victory, including the training, strength, endurance, and greatness that goes into every participant’s Indy Mini story.
