Official Partner Hotel

Sorry, we don’t have an official hotel partner for Indy. We’ve banged our heads too many times and have been unable to find a hotel that will block 10+ rooms for us. There’s a Beachbody conference in town and the hotels are requiring us to have a 4 night minimum stay, which obviously doesn’t make sense for almost every runner coming for the race. We’re directing runners to Expedia to book their own rooms. I’m really sorry about this.

Here’s a link to Expedia Indianapolis search Friday – Sunday:


Recommended parking for this event is off of West Washington Street near the Indianapolis Zoo next to the White River Gardens.  Additional parking may be found further east on West Washington Street at White River State Park.
