INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Two members of the City-County Council will get a very close look at Indianapolis on Saturday.
Jeff Miller and John Barth will be among the runners in the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon.
Their training runs let them see the city in a way they can't if they're driving through a neighborhood.
Running has also given them a chance to see what they like about the Indianapolis trail system.
"Just looking along the Cultural Trail right here, you see an awesome place for runners. We've done a lot of investment in some key areas. Now, we really need to expand the networks so everybody can partake in it," Barth said.
"We want it to be easy for someone to get onto the trail system and then to explore wherever they want," Miller said.
Both council members say we will see more connectivity between the various trails in the Indianapolis network.
They also say they'll be live tweeting during the race.
And, if they spot a problem -- such as a pothole -- Miller said they can use the Mayor's Action Center app to report it.
