Fastest Dog in Austin
Think your dog is the fast dog in the city? Then prove it! When you register to run the 5K you can add man's best friend to your chip timer and your dog's time will be clocked in along with yours. We'll have special awards after the race for the official Fastest Dog in Austin. Have a dog that prefers a Sunday stroll to racing pace? That's okay! The Bun Run is one of the few dog friendly races in town, so bring 'em out to run, jog or walk with you! Just make sure all dogs participating in the run are on a leash.
Register any time before 7pm CST on Saturday, April 27 and pay just $35 for the 10K and $30 for the 5K. Price includes your choice of timed or untimed registration. After 7pm on April 27, fees will be $40 for the 10K and $35 for the 5K.
