The 5k benefitting Paramount Theatre, part of the Ascension Seton Austin Marathon Weekend, will fill Austin’s streets. Participants are treated to experience Austin’s finest! They race along open roads that pass iconic landmarks like UT Tower, The I Love You Mural, and Austin Power Plant; enjoy miles of Austin unique neighborhoods such as SOCO district and Hyde Park; and are greeted by cheering crowds as they close in on the finish line in front of the Texas State Capitol on historic Congress Ave.
The Austin Marathon 5K is the only 5K that goes down historic South Congress Ave. Runners will take the same start line as the Austin Marathon for an out and back course.
The course is perfect for families and fundraising teams. In addition to raising money for Paramount Theatre runners can join charity teams to help raise money for Austin Gives Miles charities.
