Schlotzsky’s is excited to host the 31st annual Schlotzsky’s Bun Run in downtown Austin, Texas! We are proud to be the longest-running 5K in the city and for the second year, we are hosting our very own 10K as part of the Bun Run! All proceeds of the run benefit the Austin Sunshine Camps, which through the support of the Austin Young Men’s Business League, has provided summer camping experiences and leadership opportunities for under-served youth in the Austin area.
With the 5K and 10K options, the Bun Run is the perfect race for casual runners and serious racers alike! And don’t forget the kids and your pets! Kids can run a fast, fun 1K and your dogs can join in the fun, too. Bring them along for an easy jog or enter them with you to be timed and see if your dog is the Fastest Dog in Austin.
For more information and to get registered for the race, head to www.bunrun.com.
The race, which is organized by the Young Men’s Business League (YMBL), benefits Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps, YMBL’s program for low-income youth of Austin and the surrounding areas. Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps’ adventure and scholarship programs send kids to camp and teach leadership, team-building and trust, with the ultimate goal of eliminating the high school dropout rate and increasing college participation.

About Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps
Established in 1928 by the Young Men’s Business League of Austin (YMBL), the Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps (ASC) have been providing a safe and nurturing environment for the disadvantaged boys and girls of Central Texas for almost eighty years. Organizers work with the children in summer camps and year-long programs to develop the tools necessary to overcome the variety of difficulties they face in their day-to-day lives. The children are assailed on all fronts from challenges of poverty and family disintegration to the threats of drug and violence. ASC’s ultimate goal is to eliminate the high school dropout rate among the at-risk youths they target, increase college participation by these same young men and women to help break the poverty cycle that so often circumscribes the life chances of this often-overlooked group. www.sunshinecamps.org
