The 500 Festival mini-mini

Fall 2023 | Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Indiana's youngest runners will take over the world’s largest sporting venue, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in the fall of 2023!

The 500 Festival mini-mini is an officially timed youth-run, providing an experience similar to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon.

The mini-mini features four different race distances, ranging from half a mile to 3 miles, allowing participants to select the race distance that best meets their age and ability. This event provides a fun, accessible activity for kids ages 5-12 to learn the basics of running.

Participants receive a commemorative shirt, a drawstring bag, and a runner's bib with a timing device. At the end of their race, participants receive their finisher's medal and finish-line snacks and water. Don't miss out on this unique event, this is the only kids run to take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

Online registration will be available closer to the event.
