A CAMPUS TRADITION.
The Longhorn Run has become a University tradition that unites students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the Austin community during the spring semester. Produced through the combined efforts of the Longhorn Run student committee, The University of Texas at Austin Student Government and Recreational Sports, the race offers a 5K and 10K course starting on the UT campus that runs through the UT campus and city landmarks. On race day, runners experience UT traditions along the course and celebrate their accomplishments at the steps of the UT Tower with a post-race celebration. Proceeds from the race benefit the UT Student Government and Recreational Sports Excellence Funds.
This year, the Longhorn Run is set to take place on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
