You see now, I had never heard of the Drumstick Dash, even though this is it’s 11th year running here in Indianapolis.
But I was asked to shoot it and I figured, oh why the hell not! Besides, I’m not doing much on Thanksgiving morning except watching another endless parade.
So with a 6:30a crew call and a 16 degree temperature outside, I was pleasantly surprised at how large this event turned out to be. A roughly 5 mile course with 17,000 runners and walkers. Many of them in shorts??
Here are a few visuals from the event.
