Grab your shoes and hit the pavement for a run followed by a margarita celebration.

The 15th annual Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run and Party will take place on Thursday, June 7, at the former Seaholm Power Plant on Cesar Chavez. Proceeds benefit The Trail Foundation, the non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the Butler Hike and Bike Trail. The Run and the Party are separately ticketed events, both beginning at 8 p.m.

The 5K will begin along Walter Seaholm Drive and travel the streets bordering the lake. The finish line will be at Sand Beach Park, and the party will take place on Seaholm’s Great Lawn. Tickets for the Run include an event t-shirt, a margarita at the finish line for all runners 21 or older and race timing.

The party, a separate ticketed event, includes margaritas and dinner by Maudie’s Tex-Mex under
the stars and lights of downtown Austin, complete with music and dancing.

Started in 2004, the Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run is the largest annual event for The Trail Foundation and raises critical funds for projects on the 10.1-mile lush, urban path in the heart of Austin.
