One of the most exciting running events of the year is coming up on Friday, September 2. The Zilker Relays is an annual race where 4-person teams run 2.5 miles each around the “Great Lawn” at Zilker Park and the Botanical Gardens.  You’ll have a great time competing against other teams in your category – like family, training groups, coworkers, etc. Grab your fastest friends and make a Zilker Relays team to show Austin just how fast you are!

A Few Reasons to Love Zilker Relays

  1. Short and fast: it’s only a 2.5 mile run per person, meaning there is a nice variety of running abilities and types of athletes. Plus you’re finished before you know it!
  2. Evening race: a nice change of pace from the 7am start time
  3. After-party! Celebrate your team with food from Taco Deli, drinks for Hops & Grain, and live music from Vallejo

Registration Details

  • The registration capacity is maxed at 250 teams, so grab your team and REGISTER TODAY!
  • Team prices vary based on team category – but it is about $40 per person.
  • Meal and post race party is included in your registration. Friends who are not racing, can purchase a party ticket in advance for $25 ($40 at the “door”)

See you at the Relays!
