3-2-1, Volunteer!

August 1, 2019

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!
