The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon has become one of the 500 Festival’s largest events since its initial running in 1977. The event grew rapidly in the 1980s and even more throughout the 1990s. Today, a field of 35,000 runners and walkers take to Indianapolis streets the first Saturday in May, with another 4,000 participating in the Finish Line 500 Festival 5K.

The pair ran the course in 1:02:53. ■ Nearly 4,000 volunteers help make the Mini-Marathon and 5K possible – from distributing packets at the Expo, to passing out water on the course – these spirited souls make this event one-of-akind! ■ Revenue from the Mini-Marathon and 5K helps fund the many free-to-the – community events organized by the 500 Festival including Kids’ Day, the Parade, Memorial Service and Education Program. ■ Eleven brave souls have participated in the Mini-Marathon every year since its inception in 1977 – that’s a lot of miles!

Held on May 24, the eve of the Indianapolis 500®, 300,000 spectators from around the country will line the streets of downtown Indianapolis for one of the nation’s premier parades, alongside the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Snake Pit has a long, colorful history at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It’s part urban legend, but some of the craziness described by your parents, grandparents or aunts and uncles definitely happened! Fans started to gather in the infield at IMS as early as the 1920s. But the hearty partying didn’t start until the 1970s in the infield inside Turn 1, which became known as the infamous Snake Pit, a combination of Woodstock and Spring Break for thousands of Midwestern kids. In 1981, the track built bleachers in Turn 1 and Snake Pit party-goers migrated to the Turn 4 infield. With increased law enforcement in the early 90’s, the Snake Pit became more of a festive place to be, rather than a party place. The Snake Pit “feel” nearly died out in result. But times and attitudes changed, as did the look of the Speedway. Grandstands were built inside Turn 1, which crimped the style of many in the Snake Pit. The Snake Pit eventually faded away by the mid-1990s. But in recent years – it’s back – now in Turn 3 and with the blessing of Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials. No, it’s no longer your mom and dad’s Snake Pit. That was a one-of-a-kind place, for better or worse. But the new Snake Pit still has the attitude, spirit and mojo of the original. It’s the ultimate place to party during the Indianapolis 500. The Snakepit Ball has been a race-eve tradition since 2004. Known as the place to see the stars, the official black-tie affair will be host to celebrities and VIPs in town for the largest spectacle in sports, the Indianapolis 500®. Red carpet arrivals will be televised on WTHR-TV beginning at 6 p.m. For the last 11 years, the 500 Festival Snakepit Ball has been host to many celebrities and VIPs. Celebrated on the eve of the Indianapolis 500 with drinks in hand, plentiful amounts of food and live music, it’s a throwback to the ‘anything goes’ mantra of the Indianapolis 500’s of decades past.

This Indiana Academic Standards-based curriculum is designed to coincide with Indiana’s fourth-grade focus on state history. The program provides teachers with lesson plans, activities and a corresponding DVD to teach students about the 500 Festival, Indianapolis 500® and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway®. In addition, all classrooms that participate have the opportunity to attend one of eight subsidized Study Trips to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway® in April or May. During the course of the Study Trip, fourth-grade classrooms travel from station to station to learn more about IMS and the Indianapolis 500®. Stations include, but are not limited to: A scavenger hunt in the IMS Hall of Fame Museum™ ■ A tour of the Pagoda and Victory Podium ■ Seeing an IndyCar up close and personal ■ Being inside the Medical Hospital that is used throughout the month of May. ■ There are two new stations at this year’s Study Trip. The Driver Equipment station shows students the ins and outs of a driver’s helmet and what drivers need to wear on race day to stay safe. The Numbers of the 500 station encourages students to think quickly on their feet as they will be given math equations to solve through a Jeopardy game. In 2014, more than 25,000 students will participate in this free program and nearly 9,000 will attend a Study Trip to IMS. Since its inception in 2004, more than 200,000 Indiana fourth-grade students have participated in this Program. The 500 Festival Foundation generates funds to support youth and educational programs of the 500 Festival, such as the 500 Festival & Indianapolis 500® Education Program.

In an effort to fight childhood obesity, the KidsFit program encourages Indiana youth to be more active and pursue a healthy lifestyle. KidsFit is a 13-week program that will target 5th and 6th grade students across the state of Indiana. The 500 Festival has identified and aligned program activities with the Indiana Department of Education’s Indiana State Academic Standards for Health and Physical Education. Participants of the program will complete 12 weekly lessons/activities. Participants will log and track their progress, running one mile each week leading up to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. The goal is for students to run 13.1 miles over the course of a 13-week period, the equivalent of a half marathon. The program will culminate on May 3, 2014 when a select number of participants are invited to downtown Indianapolis to finish their final 1.1 mile along the MiniMarathon course. Students will finish at the same finish line as the 35,000 participants who run the Mini each year. Each finisher will receive a medal and a t-shirt and will have an authentic Mini-Marathon experience. Registration for the 2015 program will open in early fall 2014. 120 Put the financial pedal to the metal.
