4/8 Statesman Cap10K

As the beneficiary of the 41st running of this iconic race, your race registration will support our parks! We are also recruiting volunteers for the aid station at mile 1 and to hand out medals at the finish line, so there are plenty of ways to give back to mother earth on race day!

4/19 Whole Foods Market Giveback

We are partnering with Whole Foods Market for another give back! On April 19th, 5% of sales from all 5 Whole Foods Austin locations will go toward Austin Parks Foundation and The Trail Foundation. Come shop for a cause, and stop by the Domain or Downtown locations to score some APF and TTF freebies.
