#1 Calculate Your Pace
When you register for the race you will be asked to give an estimated pace per mile. The pace per mile is different from than estimated finish time. Pace per mile is the pace you are physically fit to sustain on average for 6.2 miles. Why is this important? In order for race officials to start the race in the most efficient manner participants are grouped according to similar paces. Participants in similar pace groups will start faster, travel along the course faster and finish faster.
We’ve made it super easy to look up your pace from a previous race, just click on any of the links below to look up a recent event time. Please use a pace from an event that bests match your sustainable fitness level for 6.2 miles.
If you haven’t participated in a timed race recently, no problem, use one of the Pace Calculator or Pace Chart below to estimate your pace. Record a time from one of your recent training activities and compare it to the chart or log it into the calculator.
“Choosing an accurate pace will enhance your race experience and your fellow participants will thank you for it too.”
#2 Set-up Registration Profile
Setting up your registration profile in our New EnMotive registration system is easy and has lots of race benefits. With EnMotive all your race day timing stats and photos will be uploaded directly into your runner profile for easy access. In addition, runners have access to make updates or changes to their profile at any time.
“Your EnMotive profile catalogs all your running endeavors in one convenient spot.”
#3 Race Tees Sized to Fit
When you register for the race you will be asked to choose between two different cuts of T-shirts. The official race shirt is a 65% polyester & 35% rayon fabric shirt which comes in either a men’s/unisex crew neck or women’s v-neck style.
Participants can choose either style of neckline cut for their official race shirt. Take a moment to review the sizing chart below to match your body type with the measurements of each style of shirt. We do not offer shirt size exchanges at the Expo. We do offer shirt size exchanges on race day in the finish line festival and at the Cap10K race office following the race.
“The new Rayon blended race shirts have a softer feel while maintaining the techie fabric performance that we’ve come to enjoy.”
#4 Team Benefits
If you’re participating with a group of friends, family members, or co-workers, why not make a team of it. The team needs to have a Team Captain to get the whole thing started but, after that joining is easy. There is no minimum number of members to create a team and if you hit 35 or more members, you can take advantage of special perks only for Cap10K teams.
For starters, the first 40 teams to reach 35 members and opt into a team table, will receive a reserved picnic table with an umbrella in the Finish Line Festival. Qualifying teams can also opt into bulk team packet prep and pick up before the Expo.
“Super bonus for teams is that the team name is printed on the official race bib along with participant’s name.”
#5 Packet Mailing
If you are visiting Austin for the race we can’t wait to see you. We are pleased to offer the convenience of packet mailing but its only available at the time of registration. Packet mailing is a great way to get your race gear ahead of time especially if you’re driving in race morning. Select packet mailing during registration checkout.
“Traveling in from out of town race morning, have your packet mailed and roll straight up to the starting line like a pro.”
#6 Registration Protection Plan
