Carmel Marathon - 8:00 a.m. Start

The specially-designed 26.2 mile USATF certified course (USATF certification #IN17003TDK) is flat and fast! Ranked #30 in 2012 by MarathonGuide.com as the 30th best course in the US to qualify for Boston! Now the 2nd largest marathon in Indiana. The marathon has a 6.5 hour time limit.

Carmel Half Marathon - 8:00 a.m. Start

The 13.1 mile certified course (USATF certification #IN17004TDK) starts with marathoners. The Half Marathon has been tabbed my many as the fastest half marathon event in the spring because it is not overly crowded. The half marathon has a 6.5 hour time limit.

Horizon Bank 8K - 8:00 a.m. Start

The Horizon Bank 8K will utilize the same start and finish as the Marathon and Half Marathon and will provide an ultra fast course!

Carmel 5K - 8:00 a.m. Start

The traditional 5K distance is the perfect distance for all ages and skill levels. The finish will be at the main finish line along with all other race distances.

Awards Presentation and Oskar Blues Beer Garden

The Top Three Podium Awards (top three male and female overall) for all events... marathon, half marathon, 8K and 5K... will be presented in the center of the Tom Wood Vehicle Display on the west side of the Palladium just south of the Start line. Age Group awards for all events will be available at the Results Tent.

Podium awards for the 8K and 5K will be presented at 9:30 AM at the Tom Wood Vehicle Display. Podium Awards for the Half Marathon will take place at 10:30 AM and the Podium Awards for the Marathon at 11:30 AM.
