Course

Our ten mile course is flat and fast – yes, really!  The big Austin hills that some people have trouble with are not in our part of town.  Wide and fully closed roads will prevail on the USATF certified course.  No running in tight packs right next to traffic at the Austin 10/20!  Stages every half mile, seven well stocked water stations (five will offer All Sport), and premium medical support will be on course.  Mile markers and 5K signs will be posted too.  Porta-potties will be plentiful and visible and excellent SAG support will be provided.  Overall event operations will be professional and precise.  Links to the 2014 Course Maps and Diagrams can be found below.

Start/Finish Area

The Start and Finish lines are located in two separate “village” areas on Alterra Pkwy near Esperanza at The Domain in North Austin.  The expansive and open spaces here will accommodate the big crowds at the Start and at the post race party and concert.  The Start and Finish lines are about 1/4 mile apart.

Runner Tracking

The Austin 10/20 offers free runner tracking for all participants. A link to sign up for runner tracking will be posted here roughly 3 weeks before the race.

Party

The Start will be organized and tight, the finish line will be a party!  After the elite athletes blaze to the finish tape and the rest follow up, our headliner act will hit the main stage.  Runners and spectators will be rocking out to the headliner concert at approximately 10:45 AM.

The finish area will feature a spacious group reunion area and a huge Miller 64 beer garden – Texas style!  All participants are welcome here and spectators can partake too.  With perfect views of the main stage and great refreshments to boot, it’s just the way to wrap up the Austin 10/20 day.
