The Statesman Capitol 10,000 will celebrate the 41st running of the race on Sunday, April 8, 2018. The Cap10K is the largest 10K in Texas, the 7th largest in the nation and in 2017, had more than 21,300 registrants. The race begins on the Congress Avenue bridge in downtown Austin and the course passes iconic sites and ends on Vic Mathias Shores along Lady Bird Lake. Along the route, hear live music by local Austin bands. NEW for the 2018 race, will be finishers' medals, the first time in the race's history to celebrate a goal met.
The post-race Finish Line festival features live music, a beer and bloody mary garden, massage tent, food trucks and a Kids Zone, making the after-party a fun time for the whole family. The Cap10K is as Austin and local as it gets. See you April 8!

Sarah 's thoughts:

Full disclosure: this is my third year to run the Cap 10K and it seems like each year gets better and better. As the largest 10K in Texas, this race attracts runners of all different backgrounds and has a really fun atmosphere. I look forward to this race every year to cap off (see what I did there?) my racing season in Texas.

Here are my favorite aspects of this year's race:
- Easy sign up process and organized info for race day.
- A fun expo with quality vendors.
- An easy-to-access start line, complete with free parking options (if you get there early).
- A huge crowd, with unique costumes because of the costume contest.
- Extra challenges, like the King of the Hill, which times you as you ascend up to the highest point on the course.
- Well staffed, enthusiastic aid and cheer stations, as well as live music nearly every mile.
- Great swag, such as a cute tech shirt and medals, which were new this year!
- An unbeatable post race party, hosted at Austin's scenic Auditorium Shores.
