Our 45th edition of Austin’s oldest 5K is coming back to the fall racing calendar, along with its competitive 10k which will be part of the 2022-2023 Distance Challenge.
Daisy will still be a very family friendly event, so plan to bring your family and friends. We will be adding a Kid's K to the race as well! After the races, we will have a finisher’s party for the whole family and an awards ceremony to celebrate your accomplishments.
Today’s generation of children have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. Only 1 in 5 children receive the recommended amount of physical activity per day, leading to health problems, poor behavior, and low self-esteem.
Marathon Kids is on a mission to change that. By introducing children to running at a young age, they’re more likely to develop positive associations with physical activity, to see themselves as capable and strong, to improve their confidence, and to remain active for life! Running is more than just fun — it is a catalyst for change!
The 10K is included as the second race in the Austin Distance Challenge. If you are participating in the Distance Challenge, please sign up for the 10K option!
Thank you to the Mayor, the City Council, and the entire city of Sunset Valley for being amazingly gracious hosts for our event. We hope to make this a long-term partnership to help promote your beautiful city!
