New for 2019: Festival Entry

$5 per person not registered for a race

For 2019, either a race bib or festival wristband will be required to participate in festival activities (including food/drink vendors, bounce houses, obstacle course, photo booth and more). Festival entries can be purchased as part of the online registration (in addition to someone’s race entry), or purchased individually at packet pick-up or on race day.

What you get with your race registration

All race participants will receive a race number bib and access to the festival activities. Everyone 13 and older will receive a custom-designed reusable shopping bag. Everyone 12 and younger will receive a t-shirt. Kids 1K participants will receive a participation medal.

Anyone who raises $100 will win a custom-designed Tek-Tee!

Austin Distance Challenge

The Austin Distance Challenge is a series of the most prestigious local running events starting in the fall and leading up to the Austin Marathon & Half Marathon in February. The races increase in distance as the series progresses, making the series a natural component of many Austin runners’ training. In its 23rd year, the Distance Challenge is hosted by the Austin Runners Club (a 45 year old local nonprofit). Participants sign up for the series, registering for either the Full or Half Track to compete against personal goals and for awards for Overall, Masters and Age Groups.

Participants can register for all 5 races at once on the Austin Distance Challenge website, or register separately. You must participate in the CASA Superhero Run timed 5K if you're thinking about doing the rest of the challenge!


The 2019 Costume Contest will offer trophies and prize packages for the following categories:


Traditional Superhero
Invented Superhero


Traditional Super Girl
