Indianapolis Monumental Marathon

illumiNITE heads to the Hoosier State this weekend for the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon.

Billed as Indiana’s largest and fastest marathon, this Boston qualifier (all roads lead to Rome…um…Boston) also earns respect as one of the top 100 largest marathons in the world. The weekend rounds out with a half marathon, 5K, and kids’ fun run.

Race organizers provide participants an opportunity to fund raise for a special cause. Visit the Monumental Stories page on the event website to read inspirational stories from this year’s runners. Just make sure to bring some tissues.

The event Expo is on Thursday, November 5th from 4pm-7pm, and Friday, November 6th from 11am-8pm at the Indiana Convention Center. Organizers planned a lot of fun, interesting activities, including an impressive list of guest speakers. Of course illumiNITE will be there too, so please stop by to check out our winter gear. To show how much we like you, if you stop by and mention this blog, we’ll give you a prize.

“If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential to be the best you can be, I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we’re gonna be winners.”

– Coach Norman Dale (from the movie Hoosiers)
