Registration is open for the 17th annual Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run, and if you’re one of the first 100 to register, you’ll get $10 off your entry fee.

The best part about this 5K race? A margarita and tiny tacos at the finish line party. Plus, you don’t have to get up early. The run takes place in the evening, and finishes with a party under the stars in front of the Seaholm Power Plant.

The run is scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursday, June 4. It begins and ends at the Seaholm Power Plant, 800 West Cesar Chavez Street, and the course takes runners alongside Lady Bird Lake. This year, everyone is encouraged to wear neon attire. Register at

Proceeds from the run benefit The Trail Foundation, which works to maintain and enhance the Butler Trail around Lady Bird Lake.
