INDIANAPOLIS - Whether you're new to running or a seasoned expert, the Monumental Mile run can be a beneficial experience.
Laura Kegerreis, an athletic trainer with Franciscan St. Francis Health, said even for beginners who can't run the whole way, there's still a party at the end to look forward to.

And Kegerreis said the layout of the race -- a straight shot down Meridian toward Monument Circle -- should have runners excited.
"Because you see the monument down there and you know that's my final point that's my end point," she said. "I think it's going to be something that people are going to really embrace and they're going to love."
For those setting their sights on the longer Monumental Marathon this fall, the run's website says Thursday's mile-long run serves "as an early summer fitness test and a launching point for your fall training."
"If you can run a mile on Thursday, June 5, you can reach your goal at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon on Saturday, November 1," the website reads.
