Why the 10/20

Austin Marathon Runners


Ten miles is tough, ten miles is different, ten miles feels great and this ten mile race is a great deal when you add up all the runner perks and live entertainment! Half marathon entry fees are much higher than the Austin 10/20 and the only thing more they offer is 3.1 miles. Don’t be fooled in thinking that those few extra miles should cost more money. Take a detour from the well worn half marathon path and join us on a ten mile trek you will never forget! This “Austin marathon” delivers!


Twenty stages will be on course filled with live rock ‘n’ roll music from local Austin bands and we’ll have a great headliner at the Finish line too! The Austin 10/20 puts a stage every half mile along the route, right up close for our spectators – you! We’ll have some really hot local bands and more music per mile than you have ever seen on this “Austin marathon”. Austin is well known for a great music scene, you will see it on the course!
