500 Festival Post Race Party

The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon isn't just for runners or walkers. Come down to the 500 Festival Post Race Party and cheer on the thousands of participants as they cross the finish line. You'll be so motivated after seeing all of the different types of people crossing the finish line that you'll want to be among the first to register for next year's Mini-Marathon.

The 500 Festival Post Race Party in Military Park is a fun place for both participants and spectators. This beautiful urban park has plenty of grassy areas and shade trees for relaxation. There's no better way to celebrate than with an ice-cold Michelob ULTRA including a complimentary sample for participants, enjoy great live music, a live video feed of the race, and outstanding food from local restaurants and specialty food vendors.

Indiana University Health is the official medical provider for all your race day needs, so be sure to locate them on the map should you need any assistance post race.
