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!
Race day check-in will start at 7:00 am, but with our growing number of superheroes, check-in lines get very long! We recommend you pick up your bibs and event giveaways in advance on Friday or Saturday.
Friday, September 13th, 11:00 am–6:00 pm
Saturday, September 14th, 10:00 am–3:00 pm
Sunday, September 15th, 7:00 am–8:00/9:15 am
Race day check-in and registration opens at 7:00 am. If you wait to pick up your packet or register on Sunday, please arrive early to ensure you are at the start line on time (5K starts at 8 am and Kids 1K at 9:15 am).
