LONGHORN RUN

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. 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 surrounding area 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.
