Run the Monon

Indy Runners Long Run & Picnic

Are you planning on running a fall marathon or half marathon? Complete your longest training run with us! On Saturday, October 19, 2019, Indy Runners will be holding our annual "Run the Monon" event. There are two available distances: 20 miles and 11 miles. Participants will meet downtown as indicated below, then board buses to take us to the starting locations: Whole Foods at Clay Terrace on 146th St. in Carmel for the 20 mile run and 75th St. for the 11 mile run. Both runs will head south on the Monon Trail then finish downtown at the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Fitness Plaza, where we will enjoy lunch. The ACSM is only a couple blocks from where we load the buses. Note: This is NOT a race, but rather a chance to get in your longest training run with a group of friends.

PARKING
FREE Parking will be available at the Gibson Building in their East Lot (easiest entry off of Michigan St. just west of Illinois St. in downtown Indianapolis. This building is home to Sahm’s Tavern and is located at 433 N. Capital Avenue. Please note that there are no restrooms at the downtown meeting location. Please plan accordingly. However, a restroom will be available at the 20 mile drop-off point. Note: There is no port-potty available at the 75th St. drop-off point this year for the 11 mile run.

ARRIVAL TIME / BUS PICK-UP
20 milers will need to arrive starting at 7:00 am to check-in and load the buses. The buses will leave at 7:30am sharp!

Walkers will need to arrive starting at 7:00 am for an early departure at 7:30 to the 11 miles drop-off point.

11 mile runners should arrive around 8:30 am. Their buses will return from dropping off the 20 miles then leave the parking lot around 8:45 am.

Here is the Expected Route

FINISH LINE / PICNIC
Both 20 milers and 11 milers will finish at the American College of Sports Medicine Fitness Plaza located right off the downtown canal. Indy Runners will have boxed lunches for all Run The Monon participants and members, so even if you are not running, we’d love to have you come out and eat! We will begin eating around 11:00 am. (The ACSM Fitness Plaza is about 2 blocks from the parking lot).

COST (to help cover the cost of buses, food, etc.)
$15: Indy Runners, Carmel Runners, Fishers Running Club, Speedway Running Club, and Westfield Running Club members (includes run and lunch)
$30: Non-member (includes run, lunch, and an Indy Runners club membership for the remainder of 2018)
$10: Lunch only (Indy Runner or non-Indy Runner)

VOLUNTEERS
We need a handful of folks to help us staff a couple water stops along the route.  We tend to rely on those who are already tapering for their race (or maybe those who are coming back from an injury) but it's definitely a fun time seeing everyone even if you just feel like coming out to help.  You can have lunch with everyone at the ACSM afterward too. Please write to Brian S. at marathontraining@indyrunners.org to let him know you can help out. Thanks in advance!
