INDIANA (WTHI) – Lots of folks from the Wabash Valley will be participating in the 38th annual One-America 500 Festival mini-marathon on Saturday.

The mini-marathon is the nation’s largest half-marathon and with 35,000 participants, it has sold-out for the past 12 years!

The course will begin near the intersection of Washington and West Street in Indianapolis and heads west toward the Indianapolis Motor Speedway along Michigan Street. It then does a complete lap around the two and-a-half mile track before heading back down New York Street to the finish line.

If you’re participating send us your picture once you pass the finish line using our Report It! Feature.

News 10’s very own Brittany Earl and Jaclyn Bevis are both running the mini!
