Mother’s Day at the Capitol

When? Sunday, May 12 at 7 pm

Where? Texas Capitol, 1100 Congress Ave, Austin

A gathering on the south steps of the Texas capitol with live music? Count us in! Weather permitting, the Austin Symphonic Band will play a slew of festive tunes with a Cajun flair to the assembled crowd. This whole concert is, of course, in honor of mothers.

We encourage the bringing of a picnic blanket, or else get there early to snag one of the limited audience chairs. As an added bonus, parking around the capitol and downtown will be free.

A rose lays alongside a white mug that says the words, "I [heart symbol] my mom." The words look as if they were scrawled by a child.

2019 Mother’s Day 5k and 10k

When? Anytime in May 2019

Where? Anywhere- you choose the route and time yourself

This is an interesting one. We’re including it on this list because it is in honor of Mother’s Day, and honestly we haven’t heard of something like this before. The 2019 Mother’s Day 5k and 10k is a “virtual race”- that means it can be run or walked (or hopped, or skipped) from any location you choose. You time the “race” yourself, and can choose if you’d like to do a virtual 5k or 10k.

The cost to register for the virtual Mother’s Day 5k/10k is $20. This includes a custom medal and bib that will be shipped to your location. The quote on the medal says, “’All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.’ – Abraham Lincoln.” There’s also a two-medal option so you can get an extra one for mom.

In addition, at least $15 of each registration will be donated to an organization known as Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels provides vitamins and mineral to mothers and babies that need them. If you’re interested in this run of the future, you can sign up online.
