The Bats and Ghosts 5k Tour unveils a darker side of Austin that often goes overlooked. Austin was home to the first documented serial killer in America, and on this tour we will explore that theory along with dozens of other murders, suicides, and hauntings throughout the Downtown. We will also visit the largest bat colony in North America on the Congress Ave Bridge where we'll see a 1.5 million bat exodus for the night's hunt. Many of the sites and stories on this tour are morbid and macabre, so if you don't like being scared, this isn't for you!
Join us on a casual 5k running tour as we explore some of Austin's most famous haunted landmarks including the Driskill Hotel, the Governor's Mansion and, the Congress Avenue bridge, where we will witness the exodus of the largest bat colony in North America.
