Updates on the 2021 Little 500
The 2021 Little 500 Races have been rescheduled for Wednesday, May 26, 2021. The 33rd running of the women’s race will take place at 12:00 p.m., and the 70th running of the men’s race will take place at 4:00 p.m. Little 500 Weekend will not occur April 23 and 24, 2021, as previously planned.

IU Student Foundation (IUSF) worked with Indiana University’s (IU) administration, the IU Medical Response Team, and the Monroe County Health Department to develop a plan that would allow for the time-honored tradition to take place in 2021. Only essential, credentialed volunteers and riders will be able to enter Bill Armstrong Stadium, and spectators will not be allowed. Fans are encouraged to watch the races via livestream here. Details about Spring Series Events and additional expectations of riding in the May races are forthcoming.
