Registration is open for The Carmel Marathon weekend and this is one race series you will not want to miss out on! The Carmel Marathon takes place on Saturday, April 18th in Carmel, Indiana and the weekend promises a full slate of race activities for every type of runner from beginners looking to tackle a 5k to marathoners looking to either qualify for Boston or to run their first 26.2 consecutive miles.
The 5th Annual Carmel Marathon Weekend will offer a marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, Horizon Bank 8K and the newly-added Stay Healthy Hamilton County 5K. All races utilize the same start and finish line allowing spectators to see the opening ceremonies and start then cheer as they finish. Finishers for all events will receive a commemorative medal. The finish line DJ will keep the area hopping with the VIP area and Beer Garden within the finish line view. There is also the Center Green, a beautiful grassy area to stretch your legs and relax just a few yards from the finish line area.
The main event for the weekend is the marathon race and the course is sure not to disappoint. The Carmel Marathon will attract elite women and men from around the Midwest to compete for the special purse. Last year’s event attracted participants from 40 states and seven countries! The Carmel Marathon Weekend will feature entertainment along the half-marathon and marathon routes with a variety of bands, DJs and cheer groups and a full listing of the performers can be found here.
The Carmel Marathon has charity runner options available for those runners looking to give back as they make their way through the 26.2 mile course. Details about the charity partners for The Carmel Marathon can be found by clicking here.
