Challenge Yourself This Summer

Now it its fourth year, The Indie is considered by some to be among the most challenging road races in the Midwest at these distances. The 2018 10K and 5K courses begin on Maple Street in beautiful downtown Benson and take runners up and down the neighborhood hills. We like to call them the Benson Alps.

Also back in 2018 is the popular kids’ dash, the official race mascot contest, gold records for the overall male and female winners, a rooftop after party at 1912 – our 2018 presenting sponsor – and more!

Registration for the 10K (route at left) and 5K (route below) is $30 per solo artist (individual) and $25 per runner if you form a band (team), which is five or more members. There is no cost for the kids’ dash, but registration is encouraged. Questions? Shoot us an email at
