Paramount Break-a-leg 5K



Race Date: February 14, 2016
Start Time: 7:00am*

Show your love for the Paramount Theatre this Valentine’s Day by running our 9th Annual Paramount Break-a-Leg 5K! The 5K takes place Sunday, February 14th in conjunction and partnership with our main squeeze, the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon®, in support of the historic Paramount & Stateside Theatres. And, we’ll return the love by providing each pre-registered participant with a Paramount 5K Break-A-Leg race t-shirt and other great items!

The Paramount Break-a-Leg 5K starts at 11th and Congress Avenue and ending at the finish line of the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon® near the entrance of the historic 100 year old Paramount Theatre on Congress Avenue.
*Start time and course route subject to change.
Because love can quickly turn into an obsession, we’re also encouraging runners to dress up as their favorite performer from the Paramount (actress/actor/musician/usher etc.) for a chance to win some cool prizes. Plus, we’re welcoming 5K runners into our open arms (Paramount Theatre lobby) before and after the race (5:45am – 10am) for access to our restroom facilities as well as pre- and post-race coffee and hot chocolate.
