What we're about
The new Austin 10K'r Meetup invites recreational runners to experience group runs with Statesman Cap10K race staff. The Cap10K is an annual rite of spring race in Austin and as a tradition, Austinites have kicked off their running season at the race for past 39 years. Join race staff for fun social runs that cover the race course and traditional scenic routes through historic downtown. Run with us for training; run with us to be part of group or just run with us to experience something cool in downtown.
Staff organized runs are variable in distance, free, open to the public and begin and end at Austin American-Statesman’s parking lot. Baby joggers and leashed pets are always welcomed. Run distances vary between 3-6 miles and will be scheduled semimonthly. We’re going to have a lot of fun this season so be prepared for a wide variety of interesting routes. Running surfaces will vary from sidewalks and crushed granite to paved pathways and boardwalk. Each meeting will incorporate a creative theme that highlights the culture of Austin and the Cap10K. Maps, bottled water, nutritional bars, high fives and selfies will be shared at each Meetup.
