The Longhorn Run is a 10K and 5K race produced by the combined efforts of The University of Texas at Austin Student Government and Recreational Sports. Approaching its seventh year, the race has become an annual event that thousands of students, faculty, staff, alumni, family members, and the Austin community place on their calendar yearly. The course winds through the historic Forty Acres and downtown Austin as several UT traditions are highlighted and brought to life. You can expect our student organizations' Texas spirit to cheer you on as you work towards that finish line. The event concludes at the steps of the UT Tower with a post-race celebration to celebrate all runners. Proceeds from the race benefit The University of Texas at Austin Student Government and Recreational Sports Excellence Funds.
