The Austin Marathon

At The Austin Marathon, we strive to improve the lives of those around us through meaningful partnerships and events, like the Party for the Parks. This goes beyond the race participants and reaches to spectators, passersby, the community as a whole, and community partners.

The 31st Anniversary of The Ascension Seton Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K will fill Austin’s streets on February 19th, 2023. Runners are treated to experience Austin at its best. They race along open roads that pass iconic landmarks such as UT Tower, The I Love You Mural and Lady Bird Lake. The Austin Marathon has grown to be the 25th largest marathon in the USA since its start in 1992. This iconic race attracts top endurance athletes from around the globe. The team and charity program attracts many tech companies and industry leaders that call Austin home. To learn more, visit
