Austin Gives Miles
The Austin Gives Miles program connects non-profit organizations to passionate race participants willing to fundraise and raise awareness for causes that give back to our local community. Individuals can select one of our Official Charities to run with and add even more meaning to your training and race day miles by supporting a worthy cause.

Since the inception of the program, Austin Gives Miles has raised over $3.1M for Texas charities. For the past four years, we’ve been the proud recipient of a grant from the Moody Foundation to match funds raised by individual runners to their favorite Official Charity.

Our goal for 2020 is to see over 1,900 runners raise $1.3 million for these incredible causes.

Charity Chaser Program
For the past 5 years we’ve had a celebrity runner start last and run the marathon to raise money for each marathoner they pass! The Charity Chaser program not only raises thousands of dollars for Austin Gives Miles Charities, but it helps raise awareness for the program and provide a special touch to our charity program. Past Charity Chasers include CBS Austin Chief Meteorologist Chikage Windler and Sports Director for Spectrum News Ricky Doyle, and Lance Armstrong.

Check back for the big unveiling of who you will be racing against in 2020!
