Thousands run Carmel Marathon in rain

CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — Early April showers left thousands of runners drenched Saturday morning at the ninth annual Carmel Marathon but failed to dampen spirits.

Approximately 6,000 people participated in the marathon, half-marathon, 10K and 5K.

The Carmel Marathon is the city’s largest running event, one of Indiana’s most renowned races, a qualifier for the Boston Marathon and a training ground for athletes preparing for the 2020 Olympic Trials.
