Introducing the inaugural Silicon Labs Sunshine Run! Coordinated by members of the Young Men's Business League of Austin, this new event will bring the community together to have fun, promote an active lifestyle, and raise money for their worthy benefactor – the Austin Sunshine Camps.

With both 5K and 10K timed/untimed options, the Silicon Labs Sunshine Run is the perfect race for both casual runners and serious racers! Just for entering, you'll get the official inaugural

shirt – a way to remember the birth of what's bound to be an Austin tradition for years to come. Competitors listen up – these are certified courses and there are cash prizes for the winners!

And let's not forget about the kids and dogs! Kids are welcome to sign up for the 5K or 10K, but if they aren't quite ready, they can run the Kids K. Yes, your dog can join in the competition as well. The winner will be titled the Fastest Dog in Austin and will awarded a tasty treat.

 

YMBL & Austin Sunshine Camps

The Silicon Labs Sunshine Run benefits the Young Men's Business League whose main endeavor in money and time is to support the Austin Sunshine Camps with locations at Zilker Park and on Lake Travis. The Young Men's Business League of Austin, a 100% volunteer organization, was established in 1913 and is one of the oldest and most respected social service organizations in Austin. The Austin Sunshine Camps were established in 1928 and have since provided services to over 48,000 of Austin's at risk and underprivileged youth. The kids are provided with week long summer camp programs, year round tutoring and mentoring, and leadership training for their future careers. For more information about the Young Men's Business League of Austin, please visit austinymbl.org and for the Austin Sunshine Camps, visit sunshinecamps.org.

 
Austin Sunshine Camps remains the only FREE camp in Central Texas where our community's economically-disadvantaged youth are introduced to camping, conservation, nature studies, physical exercise, and social interaction.

5K & 10K COURSE

The certified 10K course will start at the corner of Riverside Dr and S 1st St. Runners will cross the 1st St bridge, hang a left on Cesar Chavez, veer off at Austin High School to run under Mopac, turn down Lake Austin Blvd for a few strides, then head back to a cheering crowd at the start/finish line. The 5K will follow the same course, but loop back when they reach Austin High School. The Kid's K will be a fast, fun 1K race and will start and end at the start/finish line.

Kid's K

If your kids aren't quite ready for a full 5K or 10K but still want to get out and run - sign 'em up for the Kids K! It's a fun, easy 1K race for kids 12 and under, and all participants receive ribbons. The race will start at the 5K/10K start line, and parents are allowed to accompany their kids at no extra charge.

After the race, bring them to the Kids Zone where they can enjoy fun activities including a bounce house, face painting, and other fun. Kid's K registration includes a Sunshine Run t-shirt, an official race number, and winner ribbon.

 
 

Fastest Dog in Austin

Think your dog is the fastest dog in the city? Then prove it! When you register to run the 5K or 10K, you can add man's best friend to your chip timer and your dog's time will be clocked in with yours. The official Fastest Dogs in Austin for the 5K and 10K will receive Inaugural Fastest Dog in Austin Trophies and Treats.

Have a dog that prefers a Sunday stroll to racing pace? That's okay! The Sunshine Run is one of the few dog friendly races in town, so bring 'em out to run, jog, or walk with you! We’ll be sure to have dog bowls at every water stop to keep them as hydrated as you are. Just make sure all dogs participating in the run are on a leash and don’t trip up other runners trying to reach their goals.

 
 

Team Challenge

Run the Silicon Labs Sunshine Run as a team. Challenge your friends, family members, and coworkers to a little friendly competition. The more teams we get on the course, the more money we raise to send local kids to the Austin Sunshine Camps, and the more fun you have! We’ll be handing out Team Trophies for Most Participants, Best Dressed, Most Energetic, and Most Entertaining.

 
 

Entertainment

There will be 2 live bands playing during the event. The Company Meeting Band will be on the Course at the Silicon Labs Building and The Mighty Renegades will be playing at the Palmer Events Center.

 
 

After Party

The Official After Party will be held at Bar 96 and will kick off at 12pm and go to 3pm.
