Posted by Tom Britt on Dec 14, 2019 8:59:48 AM


The Inaugural 53-Mile VIRTUAL 465 Challenge is an event conceived by Indianapolis-based Vision Event Management. Why 53 miles? Here's the skinny: Indiana Interstate 465 is a 53-mile loop around Indianapolis. As a kid, do you remember driving somewhere with your parents and imagining yourself moving on a map? Now, dig if you will a picture of yourself running, walking, biking, skateboarding, scootering or performing any physical activity of your choice for the 53-mile loop around the 465.

WHERE: From wherever you are! Indianapolis. Any city in Indiana. Any state. Any country. This is a unique virtual event.
