Capitol 10,000 Experience

The Statesman Capitol 10,000 is the largest 10K race in Texas and one of the top 10 in the nation. In its 38th year, the Cap10K will take place on April 12, 2015 in downtown Austin. It’s an event you want to experience – from a two-day Health & Fitness Expo to a party at the finish line in Butler Park. The start of the race is iconic – right on Congress Avenue Bridge, heading straight for the State Capitol building. Passing through neighborhoods, up and down a few hills and ending into a beautiful park.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a beginner, come see why the Cap10K is a rite of spring in Austin. You can come in your favorite super hero costume…or design your own shirt and run with friends. Focus on this being your personal best…or being your first time doing a 10K. The race can be whatever you want it to be to you. There is room for it all and we welcome it! Run it, jog it or walk it, just don’t miss it!

The Austin American-Statesman is proud to partner with the Austin nonprofit community for the past twenty-one years. Beginning in 1993 the Capitol 10K race donated from its event to local community non-profit organizations. The City of Austin Hike & Bike Trail received the first donation and many more organizations have received funds each year. Including the 2014 event, the Statesman, participants and sponsors have donated over $2.7 Million to the Austin community.

The Statesman Capitol 10,000 is Texas’ largest 10K and the seventh largest in the nation, with over 18,000 participants in 2013. The race starts at the Ann Richards Bridge, which crosses over Lady Bird Lake (part of the Colorado River) and runs up to and by the Texas State Capitol Building. Bands playing live music line the race course, energizing the runners with upbeat entertainment as they wind their way along this scenic and at times, hilly, race route finishing back at Auditorium Shores on Lady Bird Lake.

Crossing the finish line first Sunday at the Statesman Capitol 10,000, Scott MacPherson felt as if he had just completed a marathon. And in a sense, he had. Defying conventional running wisdom, MacPherson ran 20 miles Saturday as part of his training for the coming Boston Marathon. Then on Sunday, he covered the 6.2-mile Cap10K course in near-record pace, giving him a weekend total of 26.2 miles.
