How to Get to the Race

On behalf of the Statesman Cap10K race staff we would like to invite you to plan ahead when making your travel arrangements to this year’s race. We want everyone to arrive on time for the 42nd annual running so, be mindful of your primary and back-up travel plans. Below we have listed recommendations for catching public transportation to the race.

Traffic Navigation

Get the best route, every day, with real–time help from other drivers. Waze is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.


Ride Sharing services currently available in the Austin (downtown) area. Please check with each service provider for pricing, terms & conditions. Pick-up and Drop-off destinations may vary race morning due to street closures along the race route.

Uber Whether you’re headed to Rainey Street, The Domain, or to Austin-Bergstrom, the Uber app connects you with a reliable ride — from low-cost to premium — in minutes. One tap and a car comes directly to you. Your driver knows exactly where to go. And payment is completely cashless.

Lyft If you’re like us, you love the Austin Area, from Rainey Street to Zilker Park to the Texas Memorial Stadium. No matter where you end up, count on Lyft for rides in minutes. The Lyft app matches you with friendly local drivers at the tap of a button. Just request and go. After the ride, simply pay through your phone.
