There’s only two weeks left before Fishers’ biggest race of the year returns! The 2023 Geist Half Marathon & 5K presented by Meijer will celebrate its 15th year with a new fall date on Saturday, September 16. The race kicks off at 7 a.m. on Olio Road near 113th Street.
There’s still time to register to run, walk, or volunteer at this popular community tradition. This weekend, the City of Fishers is offering a special Labor Day weekend promotion today through Monday with 15 percent off registration in honor of the 15th year with promo code LABOR15.
This year’s event features a new route for the family-friendly 5K (3.1 miles) through the new Geist Waterfront Park, a half marathon (13.1 miles) showcasing the stunning water views and wooded landscapes along Geist Reservoir, and a post-race party hosted by Fishers Parks. All participants receive a race shirt, medal, and free post-race beverage from MashCraft Brewing. Runners and walkers can also receive race day discounts and free treats from local businesses after the race, including Ohanalulu, Pearl Street Pizzeria, Geist Jazzercise, MashCraft Brewing, and Mochinut.
