The Austin Distance Challenge is a series of the most prestigious local running events starting in the fall and leading up to the Austin Marathon & Half Marathon in February. The races increase in distance as the series progresses, making the series a natural component of many Austin runners’ training. In its 23rd year, the Distance Challenge is hosted by the Austin Runners Club (a 45 year old local nonprofit). Participants sign up for the series, registering for either the Full or Half Track to compete against personal goals and for awards for Overall, Masters and Age Groups. Participants can register on the Austin Distance Challenge website for all 6 races, and then register separately for each race. You must participate in the CASA Superhero Run 5K Virtual Race if you're thinking about doing the rest of the challenge! The full 2020-2021 race series includes: CASA Superhero Run 5K, New! Daisy 10K, Run for the Water 10-Miler, Decker Challenge Half Marathon, 3M Half Marathon, and the Austin Marathon & Half Marathon.
