The charity run has raised $2.5 million for Caritas of Austin and offers multiple ways you can participate: with a 5-mile run, a 1-mile walk and a Kids K. Awards will go to overall and age group winners, plus top finishers in maternity, baby jogger, wheelchair, Longhorn, Red Raider and Team Challenge categories.
