Where The Athenaeum, 407 E Michigan, Indy 46204

Can my dog run? Yes – and no charge:)  you know the rules… clean up…  Dogs are not permitted in The Athenaeum, so have someone with you to watch them or check in for you.

May I push a stroller? Yes – please be courteous of runners in a hurry.

Shirts? Nope – you get a fleece blanket instead.

I’ve never done a 5K, would this be a good one for me? Yes!  We have several new runners and walkers.

Last year the weather was wonderful. Will it be warm again? Who knows… Probably not… But we get to wait indoors before and after the run!

What if it snows? Unless the City of Indianapolis declares a weather emergency, the event is on.  You probably won’t get a PR, but you will have fun running in the snow.

What if it is canceled? Again, we will only cancel if the City makes us… In that case, the event will not be rescheduled. You may still get your blanket and bib; just contact Fun-Races.  There are no refunds.

Where do I park? It’s downtown- many options depending on how much you want to pay or walk.
