Run, sweat, party for a good cause with Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run

The 14th annual Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run and Party will take place on Thursday at its new location at the former Seaholm Power Plant. The Run and Party, separate ticketed events, both begin at 8 p.m. and all proceeds benefit The Trail Foundation— the nonprofit organization that protects and enhances the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake. Katie Moran, the race director, joined us in the studio to tell us more about this fun annual event.
The Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run began in 2004 to bring together two of Austin’s favorite things: running and margaritas! The event is the largest annual event for The Trail Foundation and raises critical funds for projects on the 10.1-mile lush, urban path in the heart of Austin.
More than 2,000 runners are expected for the 14th annual event, a 5K that will begin at 8 p.m. along Walter Seaholm Drive and travel the streets bordering the lake. The finish line will be at Sand Beach Park, and the Party will take place on Seaholm’s Great Lawn. Tickets and more information are available at
