The Indy Women’s Half Marathon was introduced to the central Indiana running community in August 2010 as the first women’s only half marathon in Indiana. In just four years, it has become the largest women’s running event in the state and a 23rd largest Women's marathon in the U.S.This event is special. A women’s only race offers a unique atmosphere, emotion and camaraderie from women of all ages and abilities. Some race competitively, some for charities, some for loved ones or for reasons we may never know about, and some will run with friends decked out in colorful fashions. According to the 2013 Running USA industry report, there are 8.6 million female runners in the U.S. Within that group, half marathons are the fastest growing race distance. As Indiana’s largest women’s only running event, we hope you join us!
Due to the unfortunate weather situation we experienced during the 2015 event, there will be no official results or awards for the half marathon or 5K. The Carmel Road Racing Group would like to thank the 1,249 half marathon and 472 5K participants that crossed the start line. Although we started under clear conditions, unfortunately the weather did not cooperate as the morning progressed. Information on obtaining medals, photos will be sent to participants via email when available. We hope you will join us on September 17, 2016 for the 6th Annual Indy Women's Half Marathon and 5K.
UPDATE ON WEATHER CONDITIONS
The event will start at the normal time of 7:30 AM if raining. The event will only be delayed or cancelled if threatening weather is in the area. The start of the event will be delayed up to 30 minutes. If threatening weather approaches during the event, course police, ham radio personnel and water stop volunteers will inform you to take precautions. The flag system will be used and displayed at each water stop. If you see a red or black flag, please seek shelter in one of the public buildings nearby. The chance of storms is only 30-40% so fingers crossed. And we want you to be safe and have a great race.
