Picture this …
You’ve just finished the 40th annual Cap10K!
As you soak up the satisfaction and cold water at the finish corral, head over to the Statesman Cap10K Finish Line Festival presented by ONNIT on the main lawn of Vic Mathias Shores to enjoy:
• A free sports massage
• Live music that rocks
• Delicious food trailers
• Cap10K Cooldown Corner, featuring bloody marys, beer and breakfast tacos
• YMCA CapKids Zone
• Group photos at the Marathon-Photos finisher photo area
• The return of the dronie station!
Family & Friends Reunion Area
Please do not stop at the finish line. KEEP MOVING and make room for the thousands of participants coming in behind you. Outside the exit, five alphabetical signs will offer a REUNION AREA for you to reconnect with friends and family. Make a plan to meet at one of these areas A-E, F-J, K-O, P-T or U-Z signs.
Statesman Capitol 10,000 announces the Finish Line Festival line-up! Performances will be on the main stage April 23, 2017 starting around 8:30 a.m.
The Cap10K Dronie Experience
The Cap10K takes the selfie to new heights with the launch of the dronie. Gather your family and teammates to have your dronie video taken against the dramatic downtown skyline. (Subject to rain or strong wind.) A few days later, you’ll receive a short clip of your dronie experience to share. Please note: This experience is limited to the first 200 groups.
Cap10K Cooldown Corner
Toast to your successful run in the newly expanded Cap10K Cooldown Corner. This year, you can pull up to the Deep Eddy Bloody Mary Bar, featuring bloody marys and brunch cocktails, including the new Deep Eddy Peach Vodka. And don’t miss the Oskar Blues Beer Garden as well as the Third Base Taco bar, serving handcrafted breakfast tacos. Alcohol will only be served to participants and spectators who are 21 years old and older. First come, first served.
Authentic Austin Food Trucks
Plan on slipping a little spending money in your gear for a delicious taste of Austin’s food-truck flavor. Enjoy Austin favorites Slab BBQ, Juice Austin, Burro Cheese Kitchen, Wanderlust Coffee, ONNIT & La Fantabulous.
Greystar Autograph Wall
Leave your mark on the race. Stop by the new area to record your favorite Cap10K moment (Ex: When the superhero in a tutu blew past you!). You can also put pen to wall to congratulate a loved one. It’s also a memorable backdrop for photos.
Camp Gladiator Race Recovery Area
You were a warrior on the course (and maybe a dinosaur, too!). So, it’s only fitting you meet fellow Gladiators. After the race, they’ll help loosen up your limbs with a foam rolling station and stretching mats. You can also enjoy free giveaways and fire away with any fitness questions.
The YMCA CapKids Zone powered by DASANI
The Cap10K isn’t just for grownups. Kids are encouraged to join in on the fun at their very own YMCA CapKids Zone, filled with inflatable obstacle courses, jump house, slides and more.
FREE Sports Massages
This year, more massage therapists will be (ahem) on hand to help race participants unwind. Message opportunities are limited quantity, first come first served and not guaranteed
