Colts 5K Event Policies


Race officials may, in their sole discretion, cancel, delay, or change the event in the case of extreme conditions that may affect the safety and health of participants. In case of delay or cancellation, immediate notification will be made through Indianapolis Colts Facebook, Twitter, and website. In addition, all participants will be notified via email. Should the event be cancelled due to extreme weather or other conditions beyond the Colts' control, there will be no registration refunds or transfers.

If inclement weather (lightning, high winds, etc.) is forecast for race day, the Colts will post an update of the race status on by 5 p.m. ET, the day prior to the event and notify all registrants via email. A second update will be posted by 6 a.m. ET, on race day. If the race is postponed on race day due to weather, the latest possible start time will be 8:30 a.m. (30-minute delay). If the race is delayed more than 30 minutes, participants will be permitted to walk the concourse and tunnel inside Lucas Oil Stadium to still "Finish on the 50-Yard Line" and receive their medals.

If the event is cancelled, the Colts may host a Virtual 5K open to all registered participants. In such case, Finisher medals will be sent to all registered participants who participate in the Virtual 5K. All registered participants will still receive their race packets that will include t-shirt, medal and race bib. Details for the Virtual 5K will be announced via email in the event that the 2021 Colts 5K is cancelled. Please note that if the Colts 5K is cancelled, the Colts may postpone shipment of t-shirts, bibs, and medals to consolidate shipments.

In the event of cancellation of the ticketed game that is included as part of the Colts 5K registration, registrants will receive a partial refund of their registration fee.


Current health and safety protocols, including face coverings and physical distancing, for all attendees, staff and media will be enforced. (Protocols are subject to change prior to the Colts 5K. All updates will be communicated to participants via email.)

  • New this year, registrants will select a designated start time at either 8 a.m., 8:15 a.m., or 8:30 a.m. Each starting group will include a limited number of registrants to ensure physical distancing.
  • All 5K and Fun Run participants will be required to wear a face covering at the start and finish lines.
  • Participants will not be permitted to gather on the field after finishing. They will be able to take part in staged photo opportunities as they exit the stadium to the post-race celebration.
