Austin, TX – (Feb. 5, 2020) Statesman Capitol 10,000 fans planning to root for friends and family at the 43rd Cap10K race on April 5 can add cheer cards sponsored by Kerbey Lane Cafe to their signage. The limited number of cards will be available at the Statesman Cap10K Health & Fitness Expo April 3-4 and in local schools.
“For years, Kerbey Lane Cafe has been an unofficial part of our annual event,” said Jeff Simecek, Statesman Cap10K race director. “It’s tradition for many of our participants to cap off their Cap10K race with brunch at Kerbey Lane Cafe. We’re thrilled that this year that they are an official sponsor of our cheer cards and will help encourage thousands to keep … going!”
“The Cap10K is an Austin institution; and we could not be prouder to help make this event possible,” said Mason Ayer, Kerbey Lane Cafe CEO. “It takes an incredible number of people to make this happen, from the volunteers handing out water and the first responders keeping everyone safe to all the friends, family and neighbors cheering on the runners. We’re grateful to be a part of this community and do our part to get everyone across the finish line.”
The Cap10K, presented by Baylor Scott & White Health, is the largest 10K race in Texas, one of the top 10 in the nation, a BibRave Top Race in America and Austin Fit Magazine’s “Best Race/Run” for 2019. Additional race information is available at cap10K.com.
