The Ascension Seton Austin Marathon invites you to RUN AUSTIN, The #1 City in America on our new date, April 25, 2021! We are working closely with state and local health officials to make sure that we can deliver a unforgettable running experience while following covid-19 guidelines. The health, safety, and well-being of our team, participants, and volunteers is always our first priority.

In Austin, you will be treated to a bucket list experience and some of Austin’s finest sightseeing! Race along open roads that pass iconic landmarks like UT Tower, The I Love You Mural, and Austin Power Plant. Enjoy miles of Austin’s unique neighborhoods such as SOCO district and Hyde Park and be greeted by cheering crowds as you close in on the finish line in front of the Texas State Capitol on historic Congress Ave.

Come explore our culture-rich city and truly experience The Live Music Capital of the World with live music on the course and downtown concert. With a downtown finish and finish line festival, the Austin Marathon weekend is the perfect running event for locals, visitors, and families looking for a fun marathon and an unforgettable experience. Plus, you will within proximity to the hottest hotels, restaurants, and shops!

There is no other town in Texas like Austin, and running the #1 city in America will be an experience you’ll never forget.
