The OSCON 5K Fun Run/Walk is back! Participants will receive a map of the route and festive accessories at the starting point. You don’t have to be a serious runner. We encourage you to go at your own pace and stop to take in views of 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 Easy Tiger.

Sign up in advance here or sign up anytime Monday at the Austin Convention Center. Look for the 5K Fun Run/Walk sign-up table. Please note: only registered attendees of OSCON may sign up.

Hi Tanya,

Refreshments at the afterparty will be provided free of charge so you’re welcome to leave your purse in your hotel room beforehand. All you’ll need is your badge.

I generally don’t carry my wallet & purse around while run/walk, is this something in which I should bring my purse with me at the end of the event for the meetup at Easy Tiger?
