Community Engagement

THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME FOR YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORS TO GET INVOLVED!

Completing a marathon or half marathon is a major accomplishment and every participant can share a story about how someone along the course helped them push through and across the finish line! 

#BEMONUMENTAL IN 2022!

PARTICIPATE

The CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is one of the 15 largest marathons in the U.S. and is nationally recognized by Runners’ World as one of “Ten Great Marathons for First-Timers”. Come and be a part of the action!

Individuals and groups can register HERE.

ACTIVATE

We’re looking for individuals or groups of musicians, entertainers, roving performers, and cheer groups who are excited to motivate and encourage race participants as they navigate through our neighborhoods. Groups will be designated a performance area along our courses. Sign up HERE

VOLUNTEER

Did you know that it takes more than 2,000 volunteers to host the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and Monumental Health & Fitness Expo? This is a great opportunity for neighborhood associations, students who need volunteer hours for school, or anyone who wants to get out in support of our mission.

Would you or your neighbors like to volunteer? Individuals can register to be a Beyond Monumental volunteer HERE and will receive email updates from our team.

Interested in volunteering as a group? Contact us at volunteer@beyondmonumental.org to get involved!

SUPPORT & CELEBRATE

Our participants run through a number of Indy neighborhoods as they challenge themselves to complete the race. If you live on or near the course, we encourage you to rally your neighbors to:

– Get loud: cheer, clap, and play music
– Sign up to host a cheer station along the course
– Plan neighborhood themed porch and yard/lawn parties
– Make signs to support and encourage the participants
– Surprise the participants with your creativity and neighborhood spirit! 

Have an idea that isn’t listed? Reach out to our team at volunteer@beyondmonumental.org to share it with us.
