The OSCON 5K Glow Fun Run/Walk is back—and updated for Austin. This year, local guides will lead small groups on an Austin City Tour run/walk. During the registration process, participants will be able to choose a running, walking, or run/walk group. Participants will also receive a map of the route and festive glow accessories at the starting point. This is not a timed race as with past OSCONs but a fun, active way to experience downtown Austin.

Starting from the Austin Convention Center, the route will follow the Lady Bird Trail along the river to offer incredible city views and pass some of Austin’s most popular sights, including the Congress Avenue Bridge, City Hall, the Seaholm development project, the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, Auditorium Shores, the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue, the Long Center, and the South 1st Street Bridge.

After your run/walk, stick around at the finish line for food, drinks, and dancing at Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden.

I also have a question about photos: some group photos were taken on a bridge during the glow run/walk, but they are not in the Oscon 2016 flickr set. Any chance they will be posted?

There were running group pictures taken during the run, but very few are in flickr. Any idea when/where they might be posted?

Never got a reply after registering….ended up registering twice in the hope that I had mis-typed something – ended up never hearing anything and wasting the evening after cancelling other opportunities – Sucks

Tried several times to sign up for the fun walk, not able to access the URL. Will try to stop by the registration desk. HELP, I would like to walk the course starting around 7 pm.

Is there going to be a place to store out belongings during the run?

If we are traveling to Austin with a loved one (and they are not attending OSCON), could they join this after-hours event?

Thank you!
