INDIANAPOLIS - Close to 2,600 people celebrated the start of football season Saturday with a race at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The "Colts 5k" drew participants young and old from around the Midwest.
Fans started outside the steps of Lucas Oil Stadium and finished the race at the 50-yard line.
Among the runner was a familiar face to Colts fans.
"If you've ever come to a game and you hear 'Charge,' you know you've heard the Tuba Guy, because I play 'Charge' for all the Colts' home games," said Ray Bridges. "And so I knew a lot of the people running … if I ran in the 5k and didn't bring the horn, I would probably be in trouble with some of the fans that knew me."
Bridges said he ran the 5k in 45 minutes, while playing "Charge" on his tuba most of the way.
The Colts said they plan to make the 5k, which promotes a healthy lifestyle and raises money for the IU Health Simon Cancer Center, an annual event.
