Baby Jogger Family Start Area
The Cap10K is happy to continue a new tradition at this year’s start line for families participating with a baby jogger, The Family Baby Jogger Starting Area. This is a family friendly staging area for baby joggers with a few great perks. Families are invited to take advantage of free reserved parking at the Austin American-Statesman, conveniently located at the start line (parking pass required, first-come first-served, limited quantity). Once you’ve parked, join us at the baby jogger staging area near Corral D for family only restrooms, diaper changing tent, complimentary juice, and free pinwheels for kids.
Four Aid Stations are located along the course approximately one-and-half miles apart. Each Aid Station is supplied with water, restrooms and minor first aid supplies like band aids and ice packs. Each Aid Station is in direct communications with the race’s Medical Support Team by radio. Runner Transport* vehicles are available upon request and can be summoned by Aid Station Captains.
*Runner Transport vehicles provide non-emergency transportation back to Auditorium Shores in the event that a participant is unable to complete the race.
Each Aid Station is approximately half a city blocks in length; participants are advised to continue moving through the Aid Station if the first tables are too crowded to conveniently obtain fluids.
Course Time Limit
The Statesman Capitol 10,000 race has a course time limit of 3-hours and 30-minutes for wheelchair athletes and 2-hour limit for all other participants, at which time the course will re-open to vehicular traffic. Participants must maintain a 20-minute per mile pace (approximately) and complete the 10K (6.2 mile) distance—start line to finish line—within the event time requirement. Participants not maintaining the pace to finish within these times will be directed to get onto the sidewalk by race officials and the finish line will not remain open beyond this finishing time. Those who finish outside of the time limit will not be recorded as official finishers and may not receive full on-course support from Aid Stations and traffic personnel.
Digital clocks are positioned at the following locations throughout the course: the start line, each mile marker, 5K marker and the finish line. Digital clocks provide the elapsed event time (gun time). Mile markers will be positioned at each mile. Digital clocks at the finish line will display unofficial finish times. The elapsed event time begins with the 10K start at 8:00 a.m.
