The ONNIT Drone Experience
The Cap10K takes the selfie to new heights with the launch of the dronie. Gather your family and teammates to have your dronie video taken against the dramatic downtown skyline. (Subject to rain or strong wind.) A few days later, you’ll receive a short clip of your dronie experience to share. Please note: This experience is limited to the first 200 groups.
Cap10K Cooldown Corner
Toast to your successful run in the newly expanded Cap10K Cooldown Corner. This year, you can pull up to the Deep Eddy Bloody Mary Bar, featuring bloody marys and brunch cocktails, including the new Deep Eddy Peach Vodka. And don’t miss the Michelob ULTRA Beer Garden as well as the Third Base Taco bar, serving handcrafted breakfast tacos. Alcohol will only be served to participants and spectators who are 21 years old and older. First come, first served.
Authentic Austin Food Trucks
Plan on slipping a little spending money in your gear for a delicious taste of Austin’s food-truck flavor. A lineup will be announced soon.
Nationwide Insurance Autograph Wall
Leave your mark on the race. Stop by the new area to record your favorite Cap10K moment (Ex: When the superhero in a tutu blew past you!). You can also put pen to wall to congratulate a loved one. It’s also a memorable backdrop for photos.
Camp Gladiator Race Recovery Area
You were a warrior on the course (and maybe a dinosaur, too!). So, it’s only fitting you meet fellow Gladiators. After the race, they’ll help loosen up your limbs with a foam rolling station and stretching mats. You can also enjoy free giveaways and fire away with any fitness questions.
The YMCA CapKids Zone powered by DASANI & CORE POWER
The Cap10K isn’t just for grownups. Kids are encouraged to join in on the fun at their very own YMCA CapKids Zone, filled with inflatable obstacle courses, jump house, slides and more.
FREE Sports Massages
This year, more massage therapists will be (ahem) on hand to help race participants unwind.

Statesman Capitol 10,000 organizers and participants aren’t the only ones warming up for the approaching spring race. Quiet Company and The Nightowls are also tuning up for their respective performances at the popular Finish Line Festival after the race on April 10, 2016.
The Nightowls, a southern soul band that released their debut in 2014 to widespread acclaim, will take the stage first at the Finish Line Festival from 8:30-9:30 a.m. Quiet Company, known for their energetic live indie rock shows and winner of Rock Band of the Year during SXSW 2014, will follow at 9:30-10:15 a.m. and then again at 10:30-11:15 a.m.
