Long-time partner renews sponsorship of popular post-race Pancake Village
CARMEL, Ind. (Sept. 28, 2022) – CRRG Events is proud to announce it has secured an extended three-year partnership with Indiana Spine Group for the Carmel Marathon Weekend through 2025. Indiana Spine Group, a longtime supporter of the event, will continue its title sponsorship of the 10K event as well as its role as presenting sponsor of the post-race Pancake Village, a free and popular offering for all race participants.
Indiana Spine Group, founded in 2002 in Indianapolis, provides comprehensive spine care for all spinal disorders using the most advanced diagnostic and treatment tools. In 2011, Indiana Spine Group expanded to open a dedicated 60,174-square-foot facility in Carmel.

With more than 30 medical providers on staff offering a wide spectrum of experience, Indiana Spine Group has become one of the most successful comprehensive spine practices in the region.
The Carmel Marathon Weekend, a popular running and walking event in the Indianapolis suburb of Carmel and the 34th largest marathon in the United States, has been supported by Indiana Spine Group since 2016. The partnership grew to include title sponsorship of the 10K event and the post-race pancake village. During the 2022 event, physicians and representatives from Indiana Spine Group served more than 4,000 pancakes and 6,000 sausage links to race participants.
“We’re really proud of our relationship with Indiana Spine Group and so excited to keep it going through 2025,” said Todd Oliver, president of CRRG Events and race director for the Carmel Marathon Weekend. “Our Pancake Village is talked about all year long and we could not do this without all the support of Indiana Spine Group. Seeing their docs and staff tie their aprons, flip pancakes and serve our runners bring smiles to everyone’s faces. Their partnership is all about rewarding those who made it to the finish line. We take pride in being labeled a boutique event by our participants. As a smaller event, we’re proud to offer these special perks to participants, and Indiana Spine Group is a huge part of our success.”
