Cheer Zone at the Finish Line
Make your way to the WTHR Cheer Zone, located within the 500 Festival Post Race Party in Military Park where you can watch them cross the finish line! You’ll be so motivated after seeing all the different types of people crossing the finish line that you’ll want to be among the first to register for next year’s events.
Reunite With Your Participant
After the race, reunite with your participant in the 500 Festival Post Race Party. Located in Military Park in downtown Indianapolis, head to the Family Reunion Area in the north section of the park. There you will see signs representing every letter of the alphabet. Plan to reunite with your participant under the sign representing your last name. While at the Post Race Party, stay and enjoy an ice-cold Michelob ULTRA, great live music, and outstanding food from local food vendors.
