Course Time

The Austin Marathon time limits are set to provide the safest and most positive race day experience.  Participants in all distances will need to be able to maintain the average pace per mile in order to stay ahead of the streets being re-opened.

Austin Marathon = 7 hours (16 minute pace)

Austin Half Marathon = 4 hours (18 minute pace)

5K = 1 hour (19 minute pace)

These times make sure that runners are protected from vehicular traffic and have the support they need to successfully complete the race.  Review the traffic guide for estimated times of roads reopening.

Weather Contingency Plan

In the event of inclement weather prior to 7 AM, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 45 minutes.  If a delay of more than 45 minutes is necessary, then the Marathon will be shortened to a Half Marathon. Should the weather conditions continue to be unsafe for the run, the event will be canceled for all participants.

Athletes will be notified of event changes via email and social media. The Official Austin 2021 Marathon event mobile app will be released before the event date.
