Welcome to the best city in Texas! The race and festival are smack downtown in the middle of Austin on beautiful Lady Bird Lake. 


There’s a reason eating comes first. It’s one of the best parts of Austin! Vegetarians and vegans welcome.


Austin is known for its beautiful outdoors, so hop on a bike or a SUP and go enjoy our great weather! 

  • Lady Bird Lake may look like a river, but since it’s damned on both ends, it’s a lake! Hike, run, or bike the 10-mile trail loop 
  • Barton Creek Greenbelt: Hike, rock climb, or go spelunking.
  • Kayak or try your balance on SUP
  • Barton Springs Pool is Austin’s crown jewel. All the muni pools in the city are spring water. The water is a chilled 68 degrees year round.
  • Hamilton Pool is technically outside of Austin, but it’s worth the drive for a perfect escape. Surrounded by a limestone grotto with a waterfall, the pool is popular in the summer.


We’re the live music capital of the world. Everything from the local grocery store to city council meetings have entertainment.
