The History of the Run and Party

moonlight-margarita-run-party-2010Started in 2004, the Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run and Party is The Trail Foundation’s annual fundraising event. Ladies can trade the little black dress and heels for little black shorts and running shoes, while gentlemen can leave their ties at home.

The evening begins with an 8:00pm shotgun start to a 5K course that travels along the streets bordering Lady Bird Lake. The fast, out-and-back route starts at the Johnson Creek Trailhead underneath MoPac, next to the giant piece of granite runners affectionately call “The Rock.” Racers finish in front of the American Legion Hall on Veterans Drive. Immediately following the race, join us for our post-race party underneath the live oaks of the American Legion Hall grounds. Party attendees enjoy a Maudie’s Tex-Mex dinner and drink margaritas while listening to live music.
