500 Festival Mini Marathon might not fill field

- Associated Press - Sunday, April 20, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - With less than two weeks to go, the 38th 500 Festival Mini Marathon might not have a full field for the first time in 12 years.

Organizers tell WISH-TV ( ) that registrations would stay open for both the 13.1-mile half marathon and its five-kilometer run until the start of the May 3 races if necessary.

A 500 Festival spokeswoman, Megan Bulla, says falling short of a sellout might occur but not the race's distinction as the country's largest half marathon. She says 31,000 people finished the half-marathon last year.
