Participant Info

Estimated Finish Times

The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon uses a Wave System and corrals for a more efficient and organized race experience. Please be honest with the assessment of your ability, as you will be placed in a corral based on your run / racewalk / walk status and your estimated finish time. As a reference, most walkers complete the Mini-Marathon between 3:15 and 4:00. The Mini-Marathon has a time limit of 4 hours (18 minutes per mile pace). Participants must be able to maintain the 18 minute per mile pace or they will be required to board the trail bus. This limit allows our volunteers to clean and clear the course prior to the streets being open to traffic. Our Back of the Pack crew will be out to mark the time limit and encourage all the participants to keep going! The 18 minute per mile time limit begins when the last participant crosses the start line.
