Be part of the Austin Marathon Weekend with the Austin Marathon KXAN Simple Health 5K benefitting Paramount Theatre.
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.
Event participants will receive a one-of-a-kind shirt, snacks, and a finisher medal.
After collecting your finisher medal walk down to the State Capitol to watch the professional runners finish the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon! Don’t miss the finish festival with Live Music Stage, Beer Garden, Food Truck Court, and more! Spectators are welcome to come out and watch the excitement.
“The Paramount is thrilled to be partnering with the Austin Marathon and honored to be the beneficiary of the Austin Marathon 5K,” said Maica Jordan, Executive Director of Development for the Austin Theatre Alliance. “This is an ideal marriage of two Austin icons – the Paramount Theatre and the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon.”
