Event Details


Zilker Relays is a 10 mile"ish" event. Teams are comprised of 4 runners, each running approximately 2.5 mile"ish" out and back laps from one central festival/transition area WHICH IS MOVED INSIDE THE PARK ON LOU NEFF THIS YEAR!. The team concept of the Zilker Relays is not unique, but the combination of a relay, festival home base, drinks and music, make this experience a favorite for runners of all calibers and ages. You don't have to train like a marathoner for this one. All you have to do is be willing to run/jog/walk/stroll 2.5 miles, enjoy live music and great food and get 3 (unfortunately you need to create your teams of 4, not us!) of your siblings/kids/buddies/colleagues to come join you for this unique running experience.

If you're the first to register, click the "create a team" button above and create a great team name.  You are now the manager of your team...big responsibility!  You will be able to register and pay for all 4 team members, if you're that generous, or you will be able to invite your 3 other team members to join the team during your registration via email.  Or they could always click "join a team" and enter the great team name you create.  Make sure you all choose the same division for timing purposes as well.

Registration Fees:

BACK IN TIME!  $20 per team member for the first 50 runners to sign up!

Keeping it low...$25 per team member for the next 50 runners!

$40 per team member until the first 200 tickets are gone!

What is Zilker? 

Zilker Relays was founded in 2002 by Paul Perrone, owner of The Genesis Agency – an Austin based business that represents premium brands within the running, triathlon, cycling and outdoor industry. He gathered the help of a few friends with a desire to create something unique for the Austin running community.

 

"One summer evening I was running in Zilker Park while the sun was setting: I stopped and thought, what a great venue for a relay, party and concert," states Perrone. "I believe we have set the bar very high in Austin for what a participant receives for their entry fee." In addition to a great run, participants are treated to live music during the relay and beer garden after the event. We like to reinforce the "fun factor" that running can bring into a person's life. Running doesn't always have to be a solo effort and racing doesn't always have to be focused on individual achievement."

 

Given Zilker Park, home to the world famous Austin City Limits® Music Festival, allowed us to create such an amazing event in Austin for the past 10 years, we decided it would be best to keep the name and bring it to a city near you!

FAQs

When do I hear from you again?

After you register, you will be getting periodic runner updates...mostly as it gets closer to the race.  With the critical ones coming the week before the race with the final updates.  Make sure you have a good email when you register and if you are registering for others and only use your email, make sure you share any updates with your other team members!

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Please bring your ID, if you're old enough to have one, but there is no age limit.  Anyone who can walk, waddle, jog, run, spring, hop, skip or find someone to push them in a stroller for one 2.5 mile leg of the relay is welcome.  We're making fun of the relay and we want as many people as possible to do it with us!  If you would like to partake in any adult beverages you MUST have a valid ID proving you're of legal age to embibe.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We will let you know the parking arrangements in our runner emials the week before or you can check the specific event page at www.facebook.com/zilkerrelays.com.  We will also have plenty of bike racks and encourage as much two wheel transport as possible!

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Anything we can help you with?  Please contact us at info@zilkerrelays.com

Can I update my registration information?

Yes, Eventbrite will be able to help you with that.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Not necessarily, if you have a smart phone, or even a phone that's close to smart, please have your confirmation email with the bar code available for our check scanners adn we can save a few tress together.  If you're phone is still getting up to speed on it's IQ, print your confirmation barcode and we'll make sure you're ready to run.

What is the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds given the logistics and deadlines that go into putting on an event like this.  If something comes up that is more fun than Zilker, hard to believe but we guess it could happen, feel free to contact us or stop by packet pickup and at least get your stuff.

The name or team name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Unfortnately, given the timing chips, we have to make sure everyone is matched up with their registration ticket.  Please make sure you stop by the registration tent or timing booth prior to the start of the relay.
