Our ten mile course is flat and fast – yes, really! The big Austin hills that some people have trouble with are not in our part of town. Wide and fully closed roads will prevail on the USATF certified course. No running in tight packs right next to traffic at this Austin local race! Stages every half mile, five well stocked water stations with gatorade, and premium medical support will be on course. Mile markers and 5K signs will be posted too. Porta-potties will be plentiful and visible and excellent SAG support will be provided. Overall event operations will be professional and precise. Links to the 2017 Course Map, Start/Finish Diagrams and Street Closure Form can be found below. Minor adjustments may be made leading up to the race. The most up to date diagrams will be included in the participant instructions email.
The Start & Finish lines will be located about a block apart. The Finish Village will be located in Domain Central Park just south of Alterra Pkwy and Esperanza at The Domain Shopping Center in North Austin. The expansive and open space here will accommodate the big crowds at the post race party and concert.
The Austin 10/20 offers free runner tracking for all participants. You will receive a link in your participant instructions to sign up for split notifications via email, text and/or social media.
The Start will be organized and tight, the finish line will be a party! After the elite athletes blaze to the finish tape and the rest follow up, our headliner act will hit the main stage. Runners and spectators will be rocking out to the headliner concert at approximately 10:30 AM.
The finish area will feature a spacious group reunion area and a huge beer garden – Texas style! All participants are welcome here and spectators can partake too. With perfect views of the main stage and great refreshments to boot, it’s just the way to wrap up the Austin 10/20 day.
