Rise and shine, runners! Start your week off on the right foot with a FREE weekly run on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail and Downtown Canal with Indy Runners and Walkers. Get your miles in with a friendly group before most of the City even gets out of bed! Meet in the lobby of or outside the entrance to the Athenaeum YMCA at 5:45 AM sharp. All ages, abilities, and paces welcome. 3, 4 and 5-mile options are available using mostly the Cultural Trail and the Downtown Canal, but routes do include sidewalks and some street crossings.
Although this run takes place before the morning rush hour, light-colored clothing or reflective gear is recommended. Bike parking and Pacer Bikeshare station is conveniently located. Street parking is available for free until 7am and at the standard metered rate after that. Restrooms are available inside the YMCA and lockers/showers can be accessed using your YMCA membership or guest pass. YMCA membership is NOT required to join the run.
