Deferral & Virtual Information

We’re sorry to hear that you won’t be able to join us in person for the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and Finish Line 500 Festival 5K. Transfers are not allowed and per the refund policy, entries are non-refundable; however, we are happy to extend the below option for you to still participate!

If you are unable to participate due to pregnancy, injury or military deployment, we offer deferrals to the 2019 running events with proof. Please submit either your doctor’s note stating injury/pregnancy or proof of deployment to raceinfo@500festival.com by May 5, 2018.

To remain fair and consistent, deferrals do not extend to anyone besides the injured, pregnant or deployed participant, and we must receive proof by May 5, 2018. Deferred entries cannot extend past the following year. No exceptions.

If you are unable to participate for any other reason, we invite you to join us virtually!

Simply complete the below form, participate in the Mini-Marathon or 5K remotely on race day and send in your results. We will provide a form to submit you race results. Once we have received them, we will mail your bib, shirt and medal!
