“Like the Cap10K, Tito’s Handmade Vodka is a beloved Austin brand” said Jeff Simecek, Statesman Cap10K race director. “And like Cap10K, Tito’s also supports nonprofit organizations. There is strong synergy between our brands as they are both built through hard work and dedication. We look forward to their presence at the event race weekend, where they’ll be sharing their spirits at the Finish Line Festival. We know our participants will really enjoy cooling down with a Tito’s Handmade Vodka specialty Cap10K cocktail.”

“We are thrilled to sponsor another year of the Cap10K as we continue in the tradition of supporting our hometown of Austin, Texas alongside organizations that are equally passionate about giving back”, said Lisa Nuccio, Field Sales Manager at Tito’s Handmade Vodka. “We look forward to lacing up our shoes and racing together as we cheer on the 46th annual Cap10K race participants. See you at the Finish line!”
