Fall must be coming after all.
The Zilker Relays traditionally kicks off the fall racing season in Austin, and this year’s race is set for Friday, Sept. 8. Teams of four run a cumulative 10-mile race around Zilker Park, with each athlete logging a 2.5-mile loop. Afterward, everyone gets food from Taco Deli and live music by the Staylyns.
Registration is open now. Entry fee is $45 per person, but that cost goes up by $5 on Aug. 15. To sign up, go here.
The event is capped at 300 teams, and more than 200 have already registered.
The Kids Relay starts at 6 p.m. The full relay begins at 6:30 p.m. Runners doing the third and fourth laps should bring headlamps.
