5KMascots.JPGIn what has become a staple of the Big Ten Basketball Tournament in Indianapolis, the fourth annual Big Ten Hoops Day 5K took place Sunday morning under beautiful and mild sunny skies outside Bankers Life Fieldhouse -- site of the 2012 Big Ten Men's Basketball Championship game later today.



Both the Michigan State and Ohio State pep bands were in attendance prior to the race, going through several songs to energize a pack of 1,500 runners and walkers.



The race began around 11 a.m. local time and covered a 3.2-mile circuit in downtown Indianapolis, passing several restaurants that participated in the Big Ten Restaurant Pairings.



The finish line was moved this year to Georgia Street, located just outside Bankers Life Fieldhouse.  Here a pack of runners cross the finish line sporting many of their favorite Big Ten school colors.
