The 4th Annual Silicon Labs Sunshine Run

We have lots of great races to choose from in Central Texas. Many of them are supporting some form of a charity or good cause. The 4th annual Silicone Labs Sunshine Run is one of those with an awesome mission, to support underprivileged children in the area. The volunteers of the Young Men’s Business League of Austin (YMBL) coordinate this race to help support the Austin Sunshine Camps.


Austin Sunshine Camps are the only free camps in central Texas.  The camps provide opportunities for underprivileged children to enjoy camping, hiking, nature studies, social interaction and outdoor physical exercise at Austin’s beautiful Zilker Park and Lake Travis.   YMBL is committed to supporting the mission of Austin Sunshine Camps, engaging and empowering youth through education and outdoor experiences.


We all love to run and race around town; why not do it with a purpose this weekend and support this great cause?  Come out this Sunday, May 7th and run the 5k or 10k.   There’s also a Fastest Dog in Austin 5k and a Kid’s 1k.  Fun for the whole family!


The Sunshine Run is happening at Vic Mathias Shores at the corner of Riverside and South 1st on Sunday, May 7th starting at 7:30am.  There are both timed and un-timed options.   The kid’s 1k starts at 9:00am.

The race will have medals, awards, and cash prizes for the winners.
