Join hundreds of runners and walkers on Thursday, October 18th 6:30-9:30 pm for the 12th annual Ripple Effect 5k.

Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. start at Runners Forum (902 E Westfield Blvd). Follow a scenic course on residential and commercial streets in Broad Ripple Village. People of all ages and ability levels are welcome!  Awards will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers.

Qualifying participants receive gifts and prizes including t-shirt, pint glass, beer tickets, wine coupons, and admission to the post-race block party with refreshments from Yats and Greeks Pizza, vendors, giveaways, and raffles.

As the name suggests, the impact of the Ripple Effect is felt throughout the community. Proceeds from the event benefit the Broad Ripple Village Association, a nonprofit focused on enriching the community, attracting investment, amplifying public spaces, and improving quality of life.

By participating, you will help fund important BRVA programs, including: public safety, beautification, and lighting, among many others. These programs ensure that Broad Ripple continues to be a safe and attractive place for people to live, work, and visit.

Event organizers need assistance at the registration table, water stations, and along the course. Volunteers will receive a complimentary T-shirt! If interested, contact Jason at
