Indianapolis is the capital and largest city of the U.S. state of Indiana. The city was founded on the White River, which runs along the western edge of downtown. Although famous for hosting the world’s largest single-day sporting event, the Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis is also unofficially known as a leading Amateur Sports City. As such, there’s an excellent scene for running in Indianapolis — in fact, the city home to the nation’s largest half marathon!
There are some great running options in the downtown area, notably along the White River, the canals, and the unique 8-mile ‘Cultural Trail’. Further afield, there are some wonderful rail trails and parks for running. Note: If you’d like to have a guided running experience in Indianapolis, we highly recommend our affiliate partner Go!
