The Austin PRIDE Rainbow Run is a 5K (3.1 miles) race through the streets of downtown Austin.  Starting at the intersection of Riverside Drive and S. 1st Street, the race route will cover two laps leading runners across Lady Bird Lake and up to the 4th Street Warehouse District.

This year's run will finish with a RAINBOW EXPLOSION party at the finish line!  We will show our pride with the best post-5k party in Austin, as each participant will be given a bag of "Rainbow Magic" color powder* and a challenge to see how much rainbow color a body can hold!  The party will also include DJ C-Rail spinning, food, and a health and wellness vendor expo.

Proceeds from the Rainbow Run will benefit various local non-profits, including this year's featured Austin PRIDE Cares beneficiaries: AIDS Services of Austin; Out Youth; Transgender Education Network of Texas; and Equality Texas.

ATTENTION: Online registration closes at midnight on Thursday, Sept 20th.

You can still register the day of the race at the Start line (Riverside Dr and South 1st)


Packet Pick Up for the Austin Pride 5K Rainbow Run will be on the following days:

  • Friday, Sept 21, 2012, Texas Running Company (1011 W 5th St #110, Austin, TX) from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, Sept 22, 2012 (day of the race) at South 1st Street Bridge (South 1st St and Riverside Dr) from 7:00 AM - 8:50 AM.


*"Rainbow Magic" color powder is 100% natural and safe.  You can actually eat the stuff, although be forewarned that it is full of empty calories!

If you want to participate in the Rainbow Color Explosion Party after the race (when you cross the finish line) then wear clothing that you do not mind getting color powder on. The color powder is colored corn starch that is completely safe and will wash off, however on some fabrics there may be some staining.
