The festivities kick off on Thursday and Friday at the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon Expo.

All Mini-Marathon and 5K participants will pick up their race-day materials at the event. Those materials include a bib/timing device, participant shirt, and gear check bag. Participants must stop by the OneAmerica booth and show their bib to receive their hat (while supplies last). NOTE: Packet pick-up is not available the morning of the race.

The Expo is located at the Indiana Convention Center, Hall A – which can be accessed from the entrance near Maryland Street and Missouri Street.

It is open May 4 from 4 - 8 p.m. and May 5 from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.
