Route Descripiton

This month’s holiday themed social run will take us out to the Lakeway area and Texas hill country. This special edition of Austin 10K’r social run will visit a scenic route in the Rough Hollow community. The Hot Chocolate ‘n’ Marshmallows Run will start and finish at the Highland Village Community Center. The center has an outdoor courtyard and an indoor pavilion that we will meet at before we start. The community center pavilion has indoor restrooms and always a deal maker for families, a children’s playscape. The Hot Chocolate run has three different routes to choose from. For those just getting started we have a Marathon Kids family 1-mile route that starts from the community center and travels straight down Highlands Blvd. sidewalk on leisurely out-and-back course. For those needing to get the heartrate up a little the 3-mile figure eight route will criss cross through the Rough Hollow neighborhood. The 6-mile route includes a brief extension off the 3-mile route to challenge your endurance.  Although this is a sleepy neighborhood we encourage everyone to use the paved sidewalks along the entirety of each route.
