The Red Nose Romp is Indy’s newest 5k bringing runners & walkers together to celebrate the holidays with the warmest & most cheerful start/finish line EVER! This race boasts the most festive course around as it wraps throughout the streets of Indianapolis in all their Christmas splendor including a custom selfie station with the Indianapolis Soldiers & Sailors Monument as the backdrop! Participants will love running with their “red blinking nose” alongside thousands of their best running pals’ together lighting the way to and from the start/finish line which is located INSIDE The Pavilion at Pan Am. Expect great festive music pre/post race, holiday themed drinks & beer, and if you choose you will also be able to join in on Indy’s largest White Elephant Gift Exchange right at the finish line! Don’t keep on with those same ol’ Holiday runs and traditions…shake things up a bit and join us for Indy’s Most Lit Holiday Run…the Red Nose Romp!

White Elephant Gift Exchange
Sign up as a participant in the anonymous white elephant gift exchange. Then get a gift value around $10 (fun, serious, whatever!). Race day you will bring your gift wrapped, and drop it off near the start/finish and receive your wristband marking you as a participant in the exchange. When you cross the finish you will get your your finisher medal, & a gift! Then during the post race party we will have lots of fun with the MC making you exchange gifts in all sorts of fun ways. We will open all gifts together at 8:30 PM
