Mini Marathon gets competition

December 6, 2007
The venerable Mini Marathon has a challenger.

As IBJ reporter Anthony Schoettle reports today, two sponsors have signed on to a half-marathon scheduled just two weeks after the Mini, which is sold out.Race Around the Reservoir will wind around Geist Reservoir to cater to runners in Marion and Hamilton counties.

Race Around the Reservoir organizers are billing their event as an alternative to those who canâ??t get into Mini, and are encouraging people to run in both.

Is the new race a threat to the main event?
