Fishers is counting down the days to the 2023 Geist Half Marathon & 5K, with just 80 days until the popular race on Saturday, September 16. The Geist Half Marathon & 5K is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Vision Event Management will co-produce the race alongside the City of Fishers. The 2023 event features a new route for the family-friendly 5K (3.1 miles) featuring the new Geist Waterfront Park, Half Marathon (13.1 miles), VIP amenities, a post-race party hosted by Fishers Parks, and more. Both races are walker-friendly and feature stunning views of Geist Reservoir. Traditionally held in the spring, the race was moved to mid-September to better accommodate the regional running schedule, construction projects along the route, and cooler race day temperatures. The event was created in 2008 by a group of Geist Reservoir residents passionate about health, wellness, and community building, led by local journalist and magazine publisher Tom Britt. Since 2008, the event has grown from a small local race to a major regional event, attracting participants locally and from out-of-state. The Geist Half Marathon is unique in its topography, scenery, and community support along the course, which features several major neighborhoods in the Geist area. More than 600 volunteers will help to host the community race alongside local business sponsors, including DeVeau's School of Gymnastics (5K Race Sponsor) and IU Health (Photo Sponsor).
