The next price increase for the Austin Marathon® presented by NXP will take place at 11:59 p.m. CST on Monday, August 29th. The price increase will affect the marathon, half marathon, and 5K events.

Austin’s flagship running event annually attracts runners from all 50 states and 20+ countries around the world. Runners will experience Austin’s unique culture with each part of the course bringing its own flavor of spectator support, music, and scenery – from funky to modern and everything in between. Highlights on course include S. Congress Ave, S. 1st Street, Lady Bird Lake, Hyde Park, and The University of Texas. Runners will cross the finish line with the majestic Texas State Capitol in the background. With start and finish locations just a few blocks apart, and within walking distance of many downtown hotels and restaurants, the Austin Marathon is the perfect running weekend destination.

Event participants who utilize onPeak’s services will receive competitive rates at hotels conveniently located near downtown Austin as well as fully flexible reservation policies for adjustable planning.
The Austin Marathon 5K benefiting the Paramount Theatre will take place on the same day as the Austin Marathon and begin at 7:30 a.m. The 3.1-mile course will begin on Congress Avenue and showcase downtown Austin and The University of Texas before finishing in front of the Paramount Theatre.
