10-Mile Relay Race

(2.5 mile legs)

We look forward to kicking off the 2023 fall racing season in Austin with the 20th Zilker Relays.

The Zilker Relays is a 10-mile race with teams comprised of 4 runners. Each participant runs a 2.5 mile loop from one central festival/transition area. The team concept of the Zilker Relays is not unique, but the combination of a relay, festival home base, drinks and music, make this experience a favorite for runners of all calibers and ages.

You don’t have to train like a marathoner for this one. All you have to do is be willing to run/jog/walk/stroll 2.5 miles, enjoy live music and great food and get 3 of your siblings/kids/buddies/colleagues to come join you for this one of a kind running experience.


10 Mile Relay. 4 Person Teams. 2.5 Mile Legs.
Complete with Fun, Food, Music & Drink

Zilker Relays started in 2003 and is known as the kick-off to the Austin racing season. It is an iconic Austin event where teams compete in different categories to claim bragging rights as the fastest team in town.

After the race enjoy the festival with live music, drinks by Real Ale Brewing Company, dinner by Taco Deli, and prizes by Balega, OOFOS, and more!

All proceeds from the event will benefit Marathon Kids, an Austin-based nonprofit on a mission to get kids moving.

The After Party

Yes. We’ll be bringing back the beer garden thanks to our friends at Real Ale Brewing Company and have Live Music!
