The Distance Challenge

The Austin Distance Challenge  is a series of the most prestigious local running events starting in the fall and leading up to the Ascension Seton Austin Half or Full Marathon in February. The races increase in distance as the series progresses, making the series a natural component of many Austin runners’ training. In its 27th year, the Distance Challenge is powered by the Austin Runners Club.

The Races

DC Runner Benefits

All registered participants will receive:

  • Exclusive discounts for all DC races.
  • ARC Running Buddy membership for non-ARC Members
  • Pre-race and post-race access to the exclusive DC Participant Tent for bag drop with food, beverages, and special product promotions.
  • Austin Distance Challenge signature magnet pieces representing each race that you complete. Collect all six to create one awesome series award.
  • DC participant wristband.
  • Awards Ceremony with complimentary food and drinks.
  • Publicly available Distance Challenge participant Leaderboard.

All participants who complete the series will receive:

  • An exclusive Austin Distance Challenge finisher’s jacket
  • We will present awards for In-Person Overall, Masters and Age Groups, both Male and Female. We will present awards at the Finisher's Party for both the In-Person Full and Half-Track Series options. 


Can’t make it to one race, or prefer to participate virtually, no problem! New this year we are offering our DC runners a virtual option. The only catch is, you will have to register for each event’s virtual race and once you default to a virtual event, you will not be eligible for the age group and overall awards.  

You will still be eligible for the coveted Distance Challenge jacket and invited to the Finisher’s Celebration!
