500 Festival Rookie Run

Kids ages 3 – 10 will put their feet to pavement during the 24th annual Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run. This non-competitive race introduces children to the basics of running and the excitement of a race – including the start and finish line production, a massive cheering section, a trip through runner’s service and the occasional celebrity siting!

The JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Rookie Run takes place in downtown Indianapolis, one block north of Monument Circle at Ohio and Meridian streets. Run distances are set based upon a child’s age and all participants will receive a goodie bag, a participant bib with the number 1, and a finisher’s medal – just like the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon participants!

Those participants that register online will receive a celebratory technical t-shirt. On-site registration will be available, although registration and shirts will be sold separately.

When:              Saturday, May 12, 12:30 – 3:00 pm

Where:             Ohio and Meridian Streets

Cost:               Register online for $8 (includes t-shirt)

Register on the day of the event for $5 (shirt not included). Shirt can be purchased for $5 (while supplies last)
