Best part of this 5K? The food stops along the way!

The best most runners get on a race course is sports drink, but an upcoming race will feature far more filling fare.

The Cooking Light & Health Fit Foodie Festival & 5K doles out nibbles at tasting stations along the race course, and wraps up with a food and fitness festival (plus a beer garden, workout classes and cooking demonstrations) at the finish line.

The event includes cooking demos, mini fitness workouts and food. Vladamir Bukalo

The event is set for June 23 at Mueller Lake Park, 4550 Mueller Boulevard, and benefits No Kid Hungry. Race start is 8 a.m. at the Browning Hangar.

Even better? Bib pickup doubles as a happy hour celebration the night before the run. Goody bags feature gifts from health and wellness brands.

The event will take place at Mueller Lake Park in Austin on June 23. Game Face Media

Registration costs $35 per person and increases on May 18. For more information or to sign up, go here.
