The Capitol 10,000 is Austin’s oldest annual race and a rite of spring event for Texans and visitors from around the county. Runners gather each year on the Congress Avenue bridge stretching over Lady Bird Lake (Colorado River) just after sunrise to celebrate the tradition spanning 46 years. The buzz mounts as news helicopters and drones hover in the distance awaiting the announcement of the starting horn. The Austin Fire Department unfurls a three-story American flag from the basket of a ladder truck to point races to the starting line. Organized in pace waves, each group of runners is corralled through the starting truss for the largest 10K race in Texas. With their sights set on the State Capitol building, looming in the distance, runners travel straight up Congress Avenue through the center of downtown.

Established in 1978, the Statesman Capitol 10,000, presented by Baylor Scott and White Health, has grown to become the largest 10K in Texas, was named the #1 10K to run in the U.S. in 2024, and annual rite of spring in Austin. We look forward to seeing you at the 48th Cap10K on Sunday, April 6, 2025.
