Beyond Monumental

Beyond Monumental is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) organization.

A talented group of civic-minded individuals with backgrounds in event management, sales, engineering, local government operations, education and charitable giving are developing a national destination marathon and half marathon in downtown Indianapolis.

Our core goals include:
1. Educating Indianapolis youth about the benefits of exercise, proper diet and healthy living.

2. Combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency by promoting health, physical fitness and wellness in the Indianapolis community.

3. Utilizing proceeds from fund raising activities, specifically a marathon, to fund charities whose missions are consistent with the other purposes of this corporation.

With the help of our participants, sponsors and volunteers, we have donated more than $1,000,000 to Indianapolis Public School Charities.


Heading into its 11th year the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is Indiana's largest and fastest marathon and among the 100 largest marathons in the world. Starting and finishing on the grounds of the Indiana State Capitol, this flat and fast course highlights landmarks and historical neighborhoods throughout Indianapolis. No matter your hometown, the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is the ideal fall marathon, offering more than 20 hotels within walking distance of the Start, Finish and Health & Fitness Expo at the Indiana Convention Center. In addition to the Boston Qualifying Marathon, there is a half marathon, 5k and Kids' Fun Run.

In our first ten years the Beyond Monumental has donated over $1,000,000 to support public education.

Indianapolis - A beautiful place to set your pace!
