The very first-ever Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is Saturday, November 1. We're looking for musicians, children banging pots and pans and folks to cheer along the 26.2 mile route. The marathon benefits IPS programs - click here for more details.
The route starts at the Indiana State Capitol, passes the Arts Garden, Lucas Oil Stadium, Circle Center Mall, Monument Circle, a number of federal monuments, the Cultural trail and the Mass. Ave. District and loops through great neighborhoods including the Old Northside, Fall Creek Place, Meridian-Kessler, Butler-Tarkington and Broad Ripple. Click here for the full marathon route. And here for the half marathon route.
There are over 2700 runners from 34 states and 4 countries participating.
Let me know if you can spare a few hours on Saturday morning to show off your talent - be it music, cheering, yelling through a bullhorn or playing your iPod though speakers in your front yard. I'm also looking for contacts for school/church bands, choirs and groups.
Let me know as soon as possible if you're available or would like more details and I'll send you more details.
Thank you for all you do for the community,
And, if you live or work on the route we're looking for a few more spots that can host entertainment.
