The premier Indianapolis 5K is back and better than ever on Saturday, July 15, 2017.  Start and finish on the Michael A. Carroll Stadium Track at IUPUI and run through the streets of scenic downtown Indianapolis while supporting the Joseph Maley Foundation mission, “serving children of all abilities.” Whether you are looking for an engaging event for your entire family to enjoy together or plan to compete for the USA Track and Field Indiana 5K championship, this 5K has a place for you.

The JMF 5K Run, Walk, Roll features an elite start option for men who can complete the course in under 18:00 and for women who finish the distance faster than 21:00 and offers an open start where everyone is welcome. JMF offers an untimed 2-mile course that individuals are welcome to roll or walk, but the full 5K-course is open to all participants.

After you finish running, walking, or rolling enjoy live music, treats from Dairy Queen, a kiddie dash, face painting, and a host of other family-friendly activities.
