Jim Spencer at Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Running for a good cause and a margarita… that’s what hundreds people will be doing Thursday night for Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run. KXAN is an official sponsor of The Trail Foundation’s annual 5K fundraising event.

The evening begins with an 8 p.m. shotgun start to a 5K course that travels along the streets bordering Lady Bird Lake. Racers finish in front of the American Legion Hall on Veterans Drive.

Once runners cross the finish line they’re greeted with a party and of course, margaritas. Last year, nearly 1,700 people crossed the finish line.

The event raises money for Austin’s beloved Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail.
