Leo is a highly decorated track star, four-time USATF National Champion, seven-time Team USA member, two-time Olympian, and the first Olympic medalist for the USA in the 1500m since 1968. 

The Manzano Mile embodies Leo ’s passion for reaching out to the community, specifically to local youth, through health and fitness programs. The event will feature individual waves for Age Groups, Elite Divisions, and a Kids Run.

Event participants will receive a one-of-a-kind shirt, snacks, and drinks with registration.

Spectators are welcome to come out, watch the excitement, and visit the Austin Marathon Expo located inside of Palmer Event Center.

“I attribute my ability to finish to my family, friends, and all the wonderful people who have supported me along the way. I want every Austin Marathon participant to feel that same rush at the end of their race. I’m challenging friends, family, and every Austin resident to line the Manzano Mile and watch these runners finish with the heart of a lion!”  – Leo Manzano
