Run(317) Through Fountain Square Benefits Keep Indianapolis Beautiful
At 6 p.m. on October 23, runners will take to the pavement and streets in and around Fountain Square for 3.17 miles in celebration of the beauty and happenings in the (317) area code. The race kicks off in front of Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB) and is followed by a post-race party featuring food trucks, music, and free beer from Flat12 Bierwerks, a fast-growing craft brewery.
Nacho Mama, Flying Cupcake and Spicebox Indy food trucks are donating 15 percent of their race-day sales to KIB, and since the (317) is one of the country’s fastest growing craft brewery spots, Flat12 Bierwerks will serve each participant over 21 two free craft beers. Race participants also receive a vintage (317) T-shirt.
The running event benefits KIB, a nonprofit organization that encourages diverse communities to create vibrant public places to help people and nature thrive. In 2013, KIB worked with more than 30,000 volunteers on over 500 community projects.
Vision Event Management, producers of the event and based in Westfield, also produces the Chicago Half Marathon, the Publix Georgia Marathon and Half Marathon, the Summerfest Rock ‘n Sole Run, the Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K, Lucky Leprechaun 7K, Monster Run and the BMO Harris Bank Madison Mini-Marathon & 5K.
