Lace-up your running shoes and prepare for an unforgettable night of fun, fitness, and margaritas as Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita 5K Fun Run turns 21! 


For over two decades, runners, joggers, walkers, and margarita lovers have converged in downtown Austin for a shotgun start and 5K course that travels along the streets bordering Lady Bird Lake and the Butler Trail before ending back at the park for the highly anticipated Tex-Mex party and margarita celebration.

This year’s run will be Wednesday, June 5, 2024 – aligning with Global Running Day, but don’t let that intimidate you. This worldwide celebration encourages people of all ages and abilities to get moving. So, join us, move a little, and then celebrate!

Gabe Milligan 05.06.2024

Can I give my dad’s racing bib to a friend to run with me since my dad got injured last week? I want to make sure I can do that before I give it to him

Bailey 05.06.2024

Yes! The bib will still be registered under your dad’s name, but as long as it’s been checked in, you’re friend can use it.
