On October 5, Indiana’s youngest runners will take over the world’s largest sporting venue! We’re bringing an Indy Mini experience to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway sized just for kids ages 5-12. But we need your help to make it a safe and enjoyable experience for participants and their families! The 500 Festival Volunteer Program, presented by Citizens Energy Group, is a fun way to give back to your community and make a positive impact in the lives of others. Plus, you’ll score some pretty sweet swag as a thank you for your efforts! How can you help on October 5?

Runners’ Services: Be a part of the finish celebration! As the 500 Festival mini-mini participants cross the finish line, you’ll guide them through the finish line experience, handing out snacks, water and other goodies.
“Ask Me”: Help participants (and their fans) with questions and provide directional assistance on mini-mini race day. The 500 Festival will provide the tools and support necessary to make you a race day superhero.
Reunion Area: Help mini-mini participants reunite with their parent or guardian after their race.
Start Line Assistance: Organize mini-mini participants into their distance-specific corrals. You’ll be part of the excitement at the start of the big race!

Ready for this turbo-charged volunteer experience? Registration is now open and available for individuals and groups. Share the news with friends and family to join you on October 5 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!
