About This Activity

Introducing the Second Annual Silicon Labs Sunshine Run! Coordinated by members of the Young Men's Business League of Austin, this 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 shirt – a way to remember 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. Dogs finishing with the top Male and Female winners of the 5K timed event will be crowned the 2015 Fastest Dogs in Austin and will be awarded a year supply of Nulo dog food.

When you register, you'll notice that we've added the option to purchase a bib for a Sunshine Camps Kid to run at no cost to their family. It's only $10 for you, but it's a life experience they'll never forget!

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.



Think your dog is the fastest dog in the city? Then prove it! When you register to run the 5K, you can add man's best friend and your dog's time will be clocked in with yours. Dogs finishing with the top 3 Male and Female winners of the 5K timed event will be crowned 2015 Fastest Dogs in Austin and be awarded their well-deserved 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 achieve their goals.
