Start a new FamilyTradition and do someone good for your heart, and maybe someone else's. Flock to Carmel this Thanksgiving and earn your turkey! Join us for a 3.1 mile run/walk on a beautiful USATF CERTIFIED course to benefit Bolt for the Heart for the placement of life saving AED's
(automated external defibrillators) in Central Indiana in an effort to save people who experience sudden cardiac arrest. Thanksgiving can challenge any routine, whether it be cooking, family events or travel.

The Bolt for the Heart 5K Run provides friends and family a chance to do something active before they start their traditional Thanksgiving celebration. Because we all have so much to be thankful for.

Q: Will there be age group awards?
A: Yes, we will have results and awards for age group finishers in 5 year
divisions

A: Yes, but we ask that you keep the volume down at a safe level so that you
can hear other runners or instructions from event personnel.

Q: Can I volunteer to help on event weekend?
A: Yes! There are volunteer positions for every type of person. It's also a great way for individuals, families, clubs, and other groups to get involved and start a holiday tradition! For students looking to earn community service hours, volunteering earns hours and a free shirt!

Q: I am registered, but cannot participate. Can I transfer my registration/bib to someone else?
A: No, as noted in the application waiver, registrations/bibs are nontransferable and cannot be transferred from one person to another.
