Introducing the third annual Silicon Labs Sunshine Run! Coordinated by volunteer members of the Young Men's Business League of Austin, this downtown race will bring the community together to have fun, promote an active lifestyle, and raise funds for their worthy benefactor – the Austin Sunshine Camps.

With both 5K and 10K timed/untimed options, the Silicon Labs Sunshine Run is the perfect race for both casual runners and serious racers! By entering the race, you'll get the official

Sunshine Run technical shirt at packet pickup. Competitors listen up – these are certified courses and there are medals and cash prizes for the winners!

And let's not forget about the kids and dogs! Kids are welcome to sign up for the 5K or 10K, but if they aren't quite ready, they can run the Kids K. Yes, your dog can join in the 5K competition as well. The winner will be titled the Fastest Dog in Austin and will awarded a tasty treat.

 

 

YMBL & Austin Sunshine Camps

The Silicon Labs Sunshine Run benefits the Young Men's Business League whose main endeavor in money and time is to support the Austin Sunshine Camps. As the only FREE camp in Central Texas, it provides a nurturing environment where our community's low income youth are introduced to camping, conservation, nature studies, physical exercise, and social interaction while enjoying the natural beauty and outdoors of Zilker Park and Lake Travis.

Our programs enrich the community by encouraging and facilitating the power to succeed through education and healthy living. Recognizing education can serve as a transformative tool, Sunshine4Afterschool was developed to arm our participating youth with the skills needed to succeed socially and academically. This program, which focuses on STEM, life skills and outdoor education, brings together middle school students for an afterschool program five days a week.

Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps renders the space and comfort our kids need to look beyond their current situation and dream big.

Kids K

If your kids aren't quite ready for a full 5K or 10K but still want to get out and run - sign 'em up for the Kids K! It's a fun, easy 1K race for kids 12 and under, and all participants receive ribbons. The race will start at the 5K/10K start line, and parents are allowed to accompany their kids at no extra charge.

After the race, bring them to the Kids Zone where they can enjoy fun activities including a bounce house, face painting, and other fun. Kids K registration includes a Sunshine Run t-shirt, an official race number, and winner ribbon.

 
 

Nulo Fastest Dog in Austin 5K

Think your dog is the fastest in Austin? Prove it and win the grand prize along with a trophy! Dogs finishing with the top Male and Female winners of the 5K timed event will be crowned the 2016 Fastest Dogs in Austin. Dogs crossing the line with the 2nd and 3rd place Male and Female finishers will be awarded a well-deserved trophy.

Have a dog that prefers a Sunday stroll to racing pace? That's okay! The Sunshine Run is one of the few dog friendly races in town, so bring 'em out to run, jog, or walk with you! We'll be sure to have dog bowls at every water stop to keep them as hydrated as you are. Just make sure all dogs participating in the run are on a leash and don't trip up other runners trying to achieve their goals.

 
 

Team Challenge

Run the Silicon Labs Sunshine Run as a team. Challenge your friends, family members, and coworkers to a little friendly competition and fundraising. The more teams we get on the course, the more money we raise to send local kids to the Austin Sunshine Camps, and the more fun we'll all have! We'll be handing out team trophies for Most Funds Raised, Most Participants, Best Dressed, Most Energetic, and Most Entertaining.

For The Kids Fundraising Campaign
 
 

 

 

You can greatly impact the Austin Sunshine Camps by making a monetary donation. For every $425 raised, we help send another kid to camp in Zilker Park or Lake Travis this summer, so any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!

The Young Men's Business League has hosted kids at camp since 1928, and it would not be possible without the generosity of individuals like you.

 
 

We love our volunteers, and appreciate their contribution to the 2016 race. We couldn't have had success it without them. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2017!
