Austin, Texas, is known for live music, South by Southwest, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Formula One and more. It’s also known for the much-beloved Statesman Capitol 10,000 race — an annual rite of spring in the capital city. 


Established in 1978, the Cap10K is the largest 10K race in Texas and the seventh largest in the country. It attracts elite athletes and competitive runners. The race also attracts participants eager to live up to the city’s slogan of “Keeping It Weird.” 


Since the inaugural race, it has raised more than $2.75 million for local beneficiaries. The beneficiary for the 2015 race is The Trail Foundation. 




Cap10K weekend includes the Cap10K Health & Fitness Expo and the Cap10K race. The 6.2-mile, USA Track & Field-certified course begins in downtown Austin at the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge, runs north on Congress Avenue towards the Texas State Capitol Building and concludes at the popular Auditorium Shores by Lady Bird Lake. 

The Finish Line Festival also takes place on Auditorium Shores and includes entertainment, food, massage and more.


Runners are encouraged to register at and take their marks on April 12, 2015, in the Live Music Capital of the World.
