Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run and Party moves to a new location this year.
The event, the biggest fund-raiser for The Trail Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to protect and enhance the Ann and Roy Butler Trail around Lady Bird Lake, is scheduled for Thursday, June 8 at the former Seaholm Power Plant.
The run began in 2004 and raises funds for projects to improve the 10.1-mile path. The run and the party are separate ticketed events; both start at 8 p.m.
Organizers moved the event from its location at the American Legion Hall on Veterans Drive to the Seaholm plant so they could accommodate more people.
More than 2,000 runners are expected for the 5K, which will start on Walter Seaholm Drive and follow streets bordering Lady Bird Lake. The run will finish at Sand Beach Park; the party will take place on Seaholm’s Great Lawn. The party includes margaritas and dinner by Maudie’s Tex-Mex, live music and dancing, and a pop-up shop by active lifestyle brand Outdoor Voices.
Tickets for just the run are $35 and include an event T-shirt and a margarita (ages 21 and older). Tickets for the run and party are $100; tickets for the party only are $70. Prices increase June 5. Major sponsors include Maudie’s Tex Mex, Whole Foods Market and NXP. To register, go here.
