The Austin Marathon time limits are set to provide the safest and most positive race day experience. Participants in all distances will need to be able to maintain the average pace per mile in order to stay ahead of the streets being re-opened.
Austin Marathon = 7 hours (16 minute pace)
Austin Half Marathon = 4 hours (18 minute pace)
5K = 1 hour (19 minute pace)
These times make sure that runners are protected from vehicular traffic and have the support they need to successfully complete the race.
