Austin Tradition

In 1978 the Statesman Capitol 10,000 started its first race and has been successfully running for the past 37 years.  Austin’s oldest race, it has become a tradition for Texans and a rite of spring for Austenites of all ages.   Beginning in 1993 the Cap 10K started donating proceeds from its event to local community non-profit organizations. The City of Austin Hike & Bike Trail received the first donation of $23,000. In 2006 the race made its largest donation of $201,452 to People’s Community Clinic and has exceeded the $2.8 Million amount in total donations to Austin’s community following the 2014 event.
