Kids are taking over the world’s largest sporting venue on Saturday, October 5, for the 500 Festival mini-mini kids’ run! The mini-mini is a timed fun run that's just for kids ages 5 - 12. With four different courses (.5 mile to 2 miles), kids can pick the race that best meets their age and ability. All races will finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s famed Yard of Bricks – just like the Indy 500!


Every mini-mini participant will receive a shirt, medal, goodie bag, runner's bib with timing device, and tons of goodies from runner's services.  


Kids will have an over-the-top experience including entertainment acts along the course, massive cheering sections, iconic photo opportunities, and a chocolate milk toast after crossing the finish line. 


Runners & fans can enjoy the mini-mini’s Celebration Zone before and after their race. The Celebration Zone will feature fun, free activities and prizes for all ages. From dance floors and obstacle courses to fun games, face painting, and inflatables, there's something for everyone at the 500 Festival mini-mini!
