    Indy is about 40 days away from the 15th running of the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathonon Saturday, November 5.  

    We’re expecting a near-record field for the Marathon and Half Marathon and we need your help to elevate the on-course experience to celebrate this milestone event for our community. Completing a road race is a major accomplishment and every participant can share a story about how someone along the course helped them push through and across the finish line. 

    I have also included a few things to help get the word out to your neighborhood:

    • The 2022 Traffic Restrictions Maps; the course map hasn’t changed this year. I will share final maps in mid-October.
    • Based on feedback from last year’s event, Indy residents are relying on posts in online community and neighborhood groups for information about upcoming events.
      • You can use the attached graphics on Facebook and Nextdoor, for example, to help ensure your neighborhood is prepared for Race Day.
      • Please be sure to use #BeMonumental and #RunIndy when you post.

    Activation Ideas:

    • Coordinate a neighborhood-wide Porch/Front Yard party.
      • Keep it simple or come up with a neighborhood-focused theme.
      • Our event colors are red, white, & blue – it’s a great opportunity to re-use your Independence Day decorations!
    • Recruit your neighbors to set up Cheer Stations along the course.
      • Make signs to help encourage the participants.
      • Groups of 10+ from school cheer squads, sports teams, and other organizations can earn a donation for their program!
    • Turn up the music!
      • Put together a neighborhood playlist to raise the volume along the course!
      • Youth musical groups – bands, choirs, drumlines, etc. – can also earn a donation for their program.

    You and your neighbors could be what participants remember and appreciate most about the 2022 CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and Half Marathon!
