  1. Community Spirit: The Zilker Relays is not just a race—it’s a celebration of our vibrant running community. We loved seeing friends and families cheering on their loved ones, and the support and encouragement shared among participants was truly magical.
  1. Scenic Course: Zilker Park provided a stunning backdrop for the race, and we hope you enjoyed the beautiful Austin skyline and lush greenery as you ran through the course. The challenge of the course, in the Texas heat, was met head-on by all of you and we admire your resilience.
  1. Safety and Well-Being: We want to express our appreciation for everyone who helped ensure a safe and smoothly run event. Our priority was your safety, and the dedication of our volunteers, medical staff, and race officials ensured that the event went off without a hitch.
  1. Charity Partner: All proceeds from the relays directly benefit the Marathon Kids Program. Marathon Kids and Austin Runners Club recently merged, and together power the Zilker Relays as Marathon Kids / Austin Runners Club. Your participation supports the Austin running community and helps develop the next generation of runners in the youth program!

As we reflect on the 20th anniversary of the Zilker Relays, your dedication to health, fitness, and the spirit of competition is what makes this event so special. So, we thank you again!
