Old Settlers Park
Here in Austin, we take our fitness very seriously, but in a fun and cool way. Why not give the fitness community another reason to come together to get their sweat on? Thanks to the Fit Foodie Festival & 5K your Saturday morning plans are made! Get your booty moving and kick off the festival with a 5K. Run, walk, or crawl, there are no judgments. Bites will be handed out along the course so you are quite literally running for food. After the 5K, stick around for the post-run festival including food and workout demonstrations. Enjoy tasting stations throughout the festival and celebration drinks in the beer garden. It gets even better, you will leave the festival with a goody bag filled with gifts from health and wellness brands! Be sure to register online to ensure your Saturday morning runs smoothly. However, registration is open up until Saturday morning but the price will increase to $55.
