This fall, join the Statesman Cap10K on a new adventure that combines your interest in exploring new training routes with the love of a delicious cup o’ joe: Austin’s Coffee House 10K Sunrise Tour.
While live races are on hold for now, that’s no reason for our runners to slow down. Through this new training program, we’re inviting you to join us every two weeks to explore custom-designed 10K routes that start and finish at local coffee houses. Reconnect with friends and meet new ones. Join us at the start line of this satisfying new training opportunity.
While physical social distancing is a must, staying close on social media is highly encouraged! Please document your virtual race and post your photos with the tag #Sunrise10KTour.
We’re really excited to see thousands of you training for our annual 10K in this new way and staying connected with the Cap10K community for the long run.
Every two weeks a new coffee house and training route will be premiered.
Tour schedule runs from October through December.
The running tour works exactly the same way as any other type of training run except we’ll be traveling to a new featured location every two weeks. The local routes can be run at any time and in any order. All you have to do is make a commitment to getting started. Participation in the tour is absolutely free but only bib holders receive coffee perks.
Do I have to purchase a bib number to run the coffee house tour? No. Participation without a bib number is free, however these local coffee houses have extended special drink discounts when you show your bib.
Do I have to run a 10K? No. How far you run, walk or skip is completely up to you and your personal fitness level. Our course maps and street decals mark each mile on the route. If you only want to walk 2-miles, flip a u-turn at mile one and retrace your steps to finish your route.
Do I have to run the training routes in sequential order? No. Once each route is published it can be used as a training route at any time.
