Media Advisory Mar 20, 2024

Editors and reporters

Media credentials and infield passes are required for the following 2024 Little 500 events at Indiana University in Bloomington: the Women’s Little 500 Bicycle Race at 4 p.m. Friday, April 19, and the Men’s Little 500 Bicycle Race at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20.

Credentials and infield passes will be issued only to working members of the media. Please fill out the linked form below for your newspaper, magazine, internet news site, radio station or television station. List, if possible, the names and assignments of those who will use the passes.

Applying for credentials

To secure credentials, complete this form.

The deadline for credential requests is noon Tuesday, March 26. We reserve the right to limit the number of passes issued to any one organization.

Credentials can be picked up at the IU Student Foundation Office at 1606 N. Fee Lane in Bloomington between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. April 16 to April 18. If credentials aren’t picked up before 5 p.m. April 18, they may be picked up at the VIP ticket tent before the race at Bill Armstrong Stadium. Please be prepared to show identification when you pick up the passes.

Only those who have submitted written requests will receive credentials.

Parking for media

Special arrangements have been made for marked television vehicles — particularly live satellite trucks — to use the parking lot of This parking will provide easy access to the facility for live news broadcasts. Please pick up this pass with your credentials before race day.

All other media will need to use public parking lots across from Bill Armstrong Stadium on Fee Lane. There is no charge for parking.


Media credentials will provide photographers with extensive access to the track, including the infield. For their safety and the safety of those participating, all infield spectators, including the media, will need to stay within the safety line 10 feet in from the edge of the track, except during the photo lap as guided by track officials.

Photographers and reporters will not be permitted to cross the track during the race to enter or exit the infield, until the conclusion of the event. No one will be given access to scaffolding and towers.
