The Austin Challenge is our biggest fundraising event of the year and the dollars you raise allow us to continue offering our free cancer programs and services. Even a small amount goes a long way to help people like Lara and Jose.
The LIVESTRONG Foundation is proud to welcome back the Austin Challenge for the 19th year. Join us, as well as riders from around the country, as we come together to celebrate life and fight cancer. Riders of all levels are invited to participate and can choose to ride one of four courses from 20-100 miles. Each cancer survivor receives a yellow rose when they cross the finish line, and friends, family and loved ones are able to ride in memory of those they have lost and in honor of those who are fighting.
After the ride, participants and spectators are invited to join us for the Post-Event Party in the Challenge Village where there will be delicious local food and beer, music, vendors and fun for all ages.
Although there is no fundraising minimum to participate, this ride is an opportunity to make a difference and help support LIVESTRONG ’s free programs and services that help people affected by cancer now.
5K run/walk added! New this year, the 5K run/walk has been added back to the Austin Challenge. Participants will have the opportunity to run or walk a timed course after the Challenge riders have left the venue. The course will close at approximately 9:15 am to clear the way for riders returning to the venue.
