Race Day Information
April 10, 2021
5k starts at 8:00 AM
Dawg Walk starts at 8:15 AM
We will be adhering to the usual Covid protocols with which we have become familiar—social distancing, spaced out start and finish area, and masks required for packet pick up and post-race for hanging out. We will likely not have a big after-party this year, but will keep an eye on our changing world as we move forward.
Race Day packet pick up and Race Day registration are available at the Butler HRC from 6:00–7:30 AM. Masks are required.
We strongly recommend picking up your packet on Friday evening to help make race morning more smooth.
- No rollerblades, bicycles, strollers, or pets allowed on the 5k course.
- All dog participants must be kept on a leash during the walk.
- Dogs are not allowed on the football field.
- It's your responsibility to clean up after your dog—please do so!
Free parking is available in the Hinkle Fieldhouse lot and parking garage off Sunset Boulevard.
Volunteer parking will be reserved in the Hinkle Lot closest to Gate 1 and the HRC.
We encourage those who need to leave a bit earlier after the race to use the Hinkle Lot, and those who plan to stay a bit for our post-race fun to park in the garage.
The Butler University campus map can serve as an additional resource as well.
Course maps will be available soon.
Our new 5k course showcases Butler’s new South Campus with a turn-around through the driveway of the Counseling Center and returning through campus with a strong finishing stretch up Sunset Avenue.
Dawg Walk (8:15 AM start)
The Dawg Walk will provide a nice tour of campus for participants and their 4-legged companions. We are pleased to donate a portion of the proceeds to our partners at the Humane Society of Indianapolis.
This is a family event. Non-motorized strollers, wagons, carts, and carriers are permitted, but participants are asked to be mindful of other two-legged and four-legged walkers. If your dog needs to take a pit stop, please clean up after them!
In order to accommodate the run/walk, campus traffic patterns and parking will be affected race morning. There will be no parking allowed at the following locations:
- Sunset from 49th to 46th
- Sunset and Lake Road
- Clarendon west and 46th street
- Clarendon and Hampton
- 44th and Haughey
- Haughey and 42nd street
- 42nd and Michigan
Any vehicle parked in violation of the no parking restriction will be towed at the owner's expense. Vehicles will be towed starting at 4:00 AM on the date of the event.
In case of inclement weather, such as ice or severe storms, the race will be canceled. In such an instance, race officials will make the determination to cancel the race at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start of the race.
