That’s me, with an unknown runner, at last year’s Maudie’s Margarita Run and Party.

Because I believe there is no better way to celebrate the Butler Hike and Bike Trail around Lady Bird Lake than by running a 5K race and downing a margarita, I present to you the Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run.

I love this event, scheduled this year for 8 p.m. June 6 at the Seaholm Power Plant, 800 West Cesar Chavez Street. It’s the biggest fund-raiser of the year for The Trail Foundation, the non-profit organization that protects and enhances our beloved and much-used 10-mile urban path. The trail – the one you probably train on regularly, if you’re an Austin runner – logs more than 2.6 million visits each year. I love running the loop because I always bump into people I know.

The city’s running community shows up in force for the always sweaty run, then settles down for live music and Tex-Mex under the stars.

Tickets are $50 and are available here.
