Technically the longest running 5K race in Austin, the Schlotzsky's Bun Run has been in existence since 1983. The other popular and longstanding Austin 5K, also held this month, Chuy's Hot to Trot 5K began one year later in 1984.
The 5K is for competitive (timed) runners as well as non-competitive runners/joggers/walkers/dog-walkers. The race is held along the shores of Lady Bird Lake at Auditorium Shores.
As with Hot to Trot 5K, the Bun Run 5K also features a kid's 1K (the Lil' Bun Run) at Auditorium Shores. The kid's race is held at 7:45 am, before the 5K Bun Run at 8:30 am.
Registration can be completed online (and closes at 7:00 pm on 4/29/2011). Late registration can be handled on the day of the race but it's going to be way early - 6am-7am.
Pre-race packets, including the official 2011 Bun Run t-shirts, can be picked up April 27-30, 2011 at the Schlotzky's at 218 S. Lamar. You can check the official site for pick up hours. You can also pick up your packet on race day on site at Auditorium Shores beginning at 6 am.
The Bun Run is a fundraiser benefiting the nonprofit Austin Sunshine Camps. Austin Sunshine Camps was the Real Austin Texas featured Austin nonprofit for May 2010
