Cap10K Virtual Race

2022 Special Edition
April 10-30

Community first--from start to finish

In the interest of health, safety and convenience for our participants the race offers a virtual race format. We hope this option gives participants the flexibility to enjoy the Cap10K experience in an social environment of their choosing.

As you’ll learn more about the virtual format on this page, we commend you for staying active and supporting local races.  The virtual race features more than 20 different and exciting routes across Central Texas or choose a route in your neighborhood. One dollar from every virtual race registration will go to The Mike & Sherry Project, the race beneficiary. All virtual race gear is conveniently mailed to each participant.

We are grateful for our running community’s continued understanding and support of our race and beneficiary. We look forward to creating a dynamic virtual race experience for you in 2022.

Let’s stay connected for the long run!

How Virtual Running Works

Virtual running works exactly the same way as any other type of running but the difference is that the race can be run at any location, along any route, at any pace and even on a treadmill.  All you have to do is go for a run or walk and provide evidence that you have completed the distance.
