Why You Should Run the Taste of East Austin 5K

The Taste of East Austin 5K at Whisper Valley on on Saturday, Sept. 28 isn’t just your typical 5K race! In addition to breaking a sweat and possibly achieving a fitness goal you’ve set for yourself, there are numerous benefits you might not have thought about when you sign up to run the 2019 Taste of East Austin Festival & 5K.

Family-Friendly Festival

The 5K is just the first part of an exciting day at Whisper Valley! Following the race, the Taste of East Austin Festival features music, kids activities, food and drinks available for purchase, and much more. Admission is free and the party continues until 1 p.m.!

Meet Your Health Insurance Goals

Many health insurance programs offer wellness and rewards programs for staying healthy. Participating in our Austin 5K could help you rack up points toward your program’s goals. These health programs vary by insurance plans, so be sure to log into your online health insurance account to learn how you can participate.

Feel Accomplished

One of the best parts about running an Austin 5K is that it doesn’t take hours of training to complete. You can get in 5K shape fairly quickly by training just three days a week.

If you don’t believe in the runner’s high, then you haven’t experienced the exhilaration of running a 5K race! Everyone participating in the Taste of East Austin will run through the scenic Whisper Valley community and receive an event swag bag and T-shirt. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced runner, it always feels good to finish a race.

Support a Good Cause

Portions of proceeds from the Taste of East Austin 5K will benefit the Central Texas Food Bank, which provided more than 39.2 million pounds of food to families in need during the 2017-2018 fiscal year. We’ll also be collecting non-perishable food donations at the Whisper Valley Discovery Center!
