Join us!

Austin 10K’r invites you to join us for a unique variety of fun running routes that will compliment your Cap10K training. Austin’s Running of the Green is a St. Patrick’s Day themed 3.5 or 5.5-mile route that travels across the river into downtown with a tour of some notable sites. Don’t forget to wear green on this run, it could pay off. The short route is quick stretch passed the Willie Nelson statue, down West 6th and then a majestic crossing of the new Butterfly Bridge on West 2nd. The longer route continues north on Lavaca passed the State Capitol, to the edge of the UT Campus and then south along sleepy Nueces by some larger-than-life wall murals. Everyone is invited to pitstop at The Loop Running Supply Co. where you’ll receive St. Patrick’s Day beads and shamrock headbands. Capture a selfie with one of the Cap10K ‘Dillos and show us the pic when you get back for a chance to win additional raffle prizes. This urban route is a combination of sidewalk and pedestrian paths that finishes with scenic hike ‘n’ bike trail along the lake.
