Restaurant Chain is now Presenting Sponsor of the Indy Half Marathon 5K at Fort Ben
July 11, 2017 – Beyond Monumental, the 501(c)3 non-profit responsible for the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and the Indy Half Marathon and 5K at Fort Ben has announced an expanded partnership with the popular breakfast restaurant, Wild Eggs.
Wild Eggs will be the first presenting sponsor of the 5K at the Fort Ben event, in addition to supporting the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. Along with the half marathon run, the event has a storied event history spanning over 20 years and brings thousands of participants to Lawrence, Indiana each fall. The races travel through Fort Harrison State Park and culminate with a family-friendly, fall cookout on the parade grounds.
The Indy Half Marathon 5K at Fort Ben also expects to host over six hundred graduates of the Monumental Kids Movement in 2017. The seven-to-nine-week youth running program created by Beyond Monumental focuses on educating central Indiana youth about the benefits of exercise, proper diet and healthy living, and provides free 5K entries to students with at least 75% participation in the program.
Wild Eggs is a contemporary breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant. Since opening in 2007, the restaurant has gained national attention for its innovative take on classic breakfast fare. Their Kelsey “KY” Brown was voted Best Hot Brown with USA Today and named Best Sandwich in America with Restaurant Hospitality. The Pop’s Poppin’ Egg Salad won Sandwich of the Year with Restaurant News. Wild Eggs offers custom-blended coffee made exclusively for the restaurant, as well as an espresso bar. Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas made with in-house fresh squeezed orange juice are among the drinks served at the cocktail bar.
“We’re excited to add a presenting sponsor for the Indy 5K at Fort Ben that is expanding in the Indianapolis market,” said Jed Cornforth, executive director of Beyond Monumental. “Wild Eggs provides unique, healthy menu options that are great for runners.”
Wild Eggs has three area locations, with one in Pulliam Square, Fishers and Carmel. They are open daily for breakfast and lunch from 6:30 am to 2:30 pm weekdays and 7 am to 3 pm on weekends.
The Indy Half Marathon 5K at Fort Ben is scheduled for Saturday, October 7. Registration for the event, as well as the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and Half Marathon, is now open.
