APF is a proud to have been selected as again an official charity partner of the 2018 Austin Marathon! That means we need YOU to run with us and help us cross our fundraising finish line. Our goal is $10,000 and we hope you’ll join us in supporting our parks trails and green spaces. Whether you join us for the full or half marathon, or the charity 5k you’ll be helping us bring great parks to every Austinite!

How to Join

The Austin Marathon uses CrowdRise to help supporters like you raise funds for your favorite causes (like us!). Registration is fairly simple, all you’ll need to do is register through the CrowdRise platform and you’re all set.

  1. Visit the Austin Gives Miles CrowdRise page here
  2. Click on “Set Up Your Fundraiser” in the top right corner
  3. Click “Join a Team”
  4. Search for or select Austin Parks Foundation
  5. Create a user name and password or simply login using Facebook
  6. After logging in hit the orange “Join the Team” button.
  7. Now you’re all set! You can set an individual dollar goal for yourself- no minimum requirement, then copy and paste your profile url and share with your friends to start raising funds for team APF!

NOTE: Registering on the CrowdRise page only registers you to help us fundraise.  You’ll still need to register for the race on the marathon website – click “Registration” at the top right and register to run!

Make a Gift to Team APF

We’ve got 30+ runners representing APF at the Austin Marathon. Each one has a unique story about why they are supporting our parks, trails and green spaces at this epic race. If you aren’t able to join us on the day – you can still choose any one of these amazing supporters and make a gift that will keep our parks up to par for the next generation.


Email and we’d be happy to help!

If the marathon or half marathon is a little too much for you – well, you’re in luck!
