The Top 5 Races You Should Know About

October is fast approaching and if you’re anything like us, the thought of Fall weather brings pumpkin spiced lattes, evenings on the patio, and trendy fashions to mind. Turns out though, October is also a great month to get involved in something active as well! Austin holds several city run/races that are fun, family-friendly, and for good causes.

We thought we would make it easy for ourselves, and you by compiling the list below.

October 10th - Crowns Of Hope 5K
This run is not just for adults, kids of all ages are welcome too, so make it a family event! You can walk, run or do both. Crowns Of Hope holds this event every year to help trafficking survivors get back on their feet. http://crownsofhopetexas.org/

October 24th - Austin Halloween Half Marathon and 5K
What something big to shoot for? Sign up for the half marathon or the 5K, bring the kids to support you from the sidelines, and afterwards enjoy live music, breakfast, and family-friendly activities. http://www.austinhalloweenhalf.com/

October 24th - The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk 5K
This run/walk is for the whole family to enjoy and helps support a great cause. The proceeds help provide research for new treatments, free prostate cancer testing, and helps educate men and family about prostate cancer. http://www.kintera.org/faf/home/ccp.asp?ievent=1141973&lis=1&kntae1141973=0412D2BFCBBE4A019C90715789B99A6C&ccp=666881
