WELCOME TO THE INDIANAPOLIS MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON
Thank you for your interest in the 20th Annual Indianapolis Marathon and Half Marathon at Fort Harrison. We are very excited about this year’s event which in addition to the MARATHON and HALF-MARATHON also includes a MARATHON RELAY, a 5K Run/Walk, and the 1 Mile KIDS MARATHON. We are a mid-size race by design and we take pride in putting on a 1st CLASS event, making sure to provide the personal touch for the participants, all at a very reasonable price.
The MISSION of the Indianapolis Marathon and Half Marathon is to serve runners, walkers, and our community through a fun, safe, and scenic event that is a good value to participants and a positive event for our community. We strive hard to please the participants by offering a well organized and friendly event. We look forward to your participation on Saturday, October 17, 2015 and wish you all the best in your training!
This scenic race starts and finishes in historic Fort Benjamin Harrison and takes participants on a beautiful loop of the Fort Harrison State Park during the peak of the fall foliage spectacle. The Marathon and Half Marathon courses are mainly flat with a challenging hill near mile 3 and just past mile 10 in the State Park.
