Cool weekend fitness events

By Pamela LeBlanc | Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 05:25 AM

With three major fitness events lurking on this weekend’s horizon (not to mention that awesome Treeathlon at Barton Springs on Saturday, which I blogged about a few days ago), I thought I’d get a jump start.

Bun Run

If the thought of a sandwich spurs you to sprint at record pace, line up for the Schlotzsky’s Bun Run, the longest-running 5K in Austin, which adds a 10K option this year. The races start and finish near Auditorium Shores, with the 10K at 7 a.m.; the Kid’s K at 7:45 a.m.; and the 5K at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, April 29. Think your pooch is the fastest in town? Dogs are invited to enter the 5K ($10 per dog). Packet pickup is 3-7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Schlotzsky’s, 218 S. Lamar Boulevard, or at Auditorium Shores on race morning. Proceeds benefit the Austin Sunshine Camps. For more information go here: http://www.bunrun.com

Schlotzsky’s Awards $1,000 to Winner of 2011 Bun Run T-Shirt Design Contest

Mike Hathaway of Arlington, Texas Earns Spot on Thousands of T-Shirts for 5k Charity Event Benefiting Austin’s Young Men’s Business League Sunshine Camps 

AUSTIN, Texas – (April 15, 2011) Austin’s very own Schlotzsky’s, home of The Original® round toasted sandwich and famous Fresh-from-Scratch® buns, today announced it has named Mike Hathaway of Arlington, Texas as the winner of its T-shirt design contest for the 29th Annual Bun Run®, the longest-running 5k in Austin’s history. Hathaway will receive a $1,000 check on Sunday, May 1 prior to the start of the race for YMBL’s Sunshine Camps charity.

“Mike is a talented individual and the public clearly loved his work by voting on his design as the winner of our contest,” said Kelly Roddy, president of Schlotzsky’s. “His design is colorful, original, creative and most importantly, best reflects the Schlotzsky’s brand. We appreciate the effort he put forth and look forward to seeing the official print on T-shirts on race day.”

The 12” x 12” colorful design is symbolic of The Original® round toasted sandwich, as it is shaped in a circle with the city of Austin animatedly drawn in the background, along with the Schlotzsky’s Bobby Bun logo dressed in a sweatsuit as it jogs down a city street into the forefront of the picture. Both “Schlotzsky’s” and the “Bun Run 2011” are captured in the outer portion of the circle surrounding the drawing.

“I was extremely excited to hear I had won the Schlotzsky’s T-shirt design contest,” said Hathaway, who also owns his own business, LMHDesigns. “This is the first time I have ever entered something like this. Well, anything with this big of a payoff! I am proud of my design and thankful to have been chosen.”

Hosting more than 5,000 runners, walkers and joggers, as well as a few four-legged friends, Schlotzsky’s Annual Bun Run began in 1982, with the company’s goal to become move involved in the Austin community. Schlotzsky’s since then has partnered with the Young Men’s Business League (YMBL), raising an average of $50,000 throughout the years with all proceeds benefiting the Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps, a program for at-risk and disadvantaged youths.

“The Young Men’s Business League is a wonderful group of individuals who come together to put on a great 5k race that benefits our youth,” added Roddy. “We couldn’t be more pleased to raise money for the Sunshine Camps.”

The 29th Annual Schlotzsky’s Bun Run will take place Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. CT atSouth First Street inAustin, nearAuditoriumShores. Additional events during the Schlotzsky’s Bun Run include the race day expo and the Lil’ Bun Run 1k that starts at 7:45 a.m. As an added treat, Schlotzsky’s will stay true to its fun, quirky and unique roots offering a bounce house and face painting for the kids, drinks and snacks for attendees and lots of fun giveaways.
