INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Runners can now start registering for the 2015 mini-marathon.
Organizers call Tuesday, “commitment day.” And in honor of that the winner of the first mini-marathon, Frank Shorter, ran the 13 mile course again.
But there’s a special reason why.
Shorter says if next year’s runners beat Tuesday’s time a charity voted on by the runners will get a big donation.
“There will be a vote and the 500 Festival Mini Marathon will donate $1(for each person who beats Shorter’s time). So it is a charity run,” said Shorter.
The time to beat is 2 hours, 4 minutes and 40-seconds.
The 500 Festival will donate a dollar for every person who runs faster than that next May.
