Statement on COVID-19

CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon

As a large event which annually attracts participants from all 50 states and over 25 countries, we have been keenly analyzing the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on distance running events.  Over the past several months, we have been working with city officials, local authorities, medical providers, volunteers, participants and community partners to navigate all of the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to convert the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon to a virtual event and forgo the in-person event experience in 2020.  Beyond Monumental is fortunate to have a significant support system in place, and we feel a deep responsibility to keep everyone involved as safe and healthy as possible.  We remain fully committed to our mission of improving health and wellness through running events and programs and will continue to work as hard as ever toward that purpose.

Registrants have the option to switch to virtual, defer to 2021, or donate their entry to our kids running program (Monumental Kids Movement).

Indy Half Marathon at Fort Ben

Over the past several months, we have been working with Lawrence City officials, local authorities, medical providers, volunteers, participants and community partners to navigate all of the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. The Lawrence Community has been extremely supportive throughout this process, however, given the fact that our organization’s mission is to improve health and wellness, and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to convert the Indy Half Marathon at Fort Ben to a virtual event and forgo the in-person event experience in 2020. We remain fully committed to our mission of improving health and wellness through running events and programs.

Registrants have the option to convert their registration to virtual, defer to 2021, or donate their entry to our kids running program (Monumental Kids Movement).
