COVID-19 Information

The Live Race is on ! ! !

There are modifications to allow our event to happen, and to happen safely.  Subject to change, here are some current plans/procedures.

*White River State Park has given this event the GREEN LIGHT!  Unless the Governor or Mayor reverses current guidelines.

*Up to 50 runners/walkers may start every 10 minutes.  The Start line is Chip-Start, meaning your time begins when you cross the start line.  

*The 50 runners in each group shall be staggered 6 feet apart from each other.  Wait until the runner is 10-20 yards away from you before you start.

*Half Marathon race start times begin between 6:00am and 7:10am

*5K start times begin at 7:30am and end at 9:00am

*There are water bottles (no open cups) at the start of the race, and near the 1.5, 2, 3.5, 4.5 & 6 miles.  You may drink and throw away the bottle, or carry it to the next stop.

*There is no open food at the finish.  There will be bananas and packaged snacks (cookies, crackers, Dole fruit bowls, ice cream, soda, etc...)

*Beer and Truly will hopefully be available.  At this time, Excise is closed and we do not have the permit yet...

*We have plenty of space at the venue, please keep social-distance from other participants when 'gathering'.

*Please wear face masks, as recommended by the State of Indiana and City of Indianapolis, at the venue.  It is up to you whether you wear one along the course.

Half Marathon Route

COVID-19, along with many other challenges, caused us to modify the route.  It is now a 6.55 mile route that repeats twice for the Half Marathon.  This route is approved and is good to go!  The good news is there is quite a bit of shade. We really enjoy these paved paths and hope you do too!

 

5K Route

COVID-19, along with many other challenges, caused us to modify the route.  First half of the 5K is a loop around the White River.  Second half is an out and back section.  This route is approved and is good to go!  The good news is there is quite a bit of shade. We really enjoy these paved paths and hope you do too!
