Mini-Marathon Sells Out Early
From the Indy Star: "Officials at the 500 Festival announced today the 2005 half-marathon has sold out at the earliest date in its 29 years of running.
The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, which will be held on May 7, will have approximately 30,000 runners and walkers, officials said. The cap was reached today, with some paper applications yet to be processed.
The race sold out several weeks ahead of last year's record pace. Terry Powers, spokesman for the 500 Festival, attributed the early sellout to continuing strong interest in the nation's largest half-marathon, plus high demand last year."
