Austin Fun Runs


Austin, TX is one of the fittest cities in the country, and lives up to its reputation by hosting numerous fun runs and marathons throughout the year. Always in support of a great cause, these marathons in Austin are a great way to get exercise and have fun while doing it. Whether you like to get dressed up in funny costumes, aren’t afraid of getting a little dirty, or simply enjoy supporting local charities or fundraisers, Austin has the right fun run for participants of all ages, size, shapes and species (dogs can participate in some, too!)

Keep Austin Weird Fest & 5K
This family-friendly run is all about staying true to Austin’s motto, “Keep Austin Weird”. Participants are encouraged to wear crazy and colorful costumes as they run along the streets of downtown Austin. Local companies provide drinks, snacks and entertainment along the route to help you along. There is live music to enjoy and local artists to see as well. The race raises money to benefit local foundations like the Austin Parks Foundation, dedicated to improving and maintaining Austin’s natural beauty.

Livestrong Austin Marathon
Run the marathon and half marathon along the historic and scenic sites of Austin to support Livestrong and the fight against cancer. Named the Coolest Host City in 2007 by Runner’s World Magazine, Austin provides the perfect setting for 20,000 people from all over the country to run together for a great cause.

Color Run
Run solo or as a team in the Austin Color Run. Not just about distance or speed, this race is both colorful and fun. Completing each kilometer of the run is where all of the excitement happens. Volunteers, staff and sponsors ambush runners with a different “magical color dust” at the end of each kilometer.  No need to worry – color dust is 100% natural and safe. By the end of the run, runners are covered with all five colors!  Participants of all ages and speeds are welcome to run in this event.

Turkey Trot
Hosted by Austin local business Thundercloud Subs, this annual Thanksgiving Day race has become a tradition to take part in for many families of Austin. As the largest 5-mile run in Texas, with a record 19,500 participants, the race is a fun and healthy way to muster up some energy and hunger for the day of feasting that follows.
