Schlotzsky’s Kicks Off 29th Annual Bun Run® Registration with T-Shirt Design Contest

5k Charity Event for Austin’s YMBL Sunshine Camps, T-shirt Design Winner Will Receive $1,000

AUSTIN, Texas – (March 14, 2011) Austin’s very own Schlotzsky’s, home of The Original® round toasted sandwich and famous Fresh-from-Scratch® buns, has announced its 29th Annual Bun Run®, scheduled for Sunday, May 1. The longest-running 5k in Austin’s history will get a fun jump-start with a T-shirt design contest that will reward one lucky winner with a $1,000 check.

Through March 24, 2011, Schlotzsky’s will accept designs for the Schlotzsky’s 2011 Bun Run T-shirt. Judges will then select five T-shirt designs based on the most creative, and which best reflect the Schlotzsky’s brand, to showcase online at from March 28 to April 10, 2011. The winning artist with the most public votes will receive $1,000 and recognition on the day of the race, as well as have thousands of race participants and volunteers sporting his or her design on their official, long-sleeve Bun Run T-shirt.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to further engage the Austin community by giving individuals a chance to show off their creative side and be recognized for it,” said Kelly Roddy, president of Schlotzsky’s.  “We look forward to announcing the T-shirt design winner as well as seeing many new and familiar faces race day.”

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 goal to become more involved in the Austin community. Through a partnership with the Young Men’s Business League (YMBL), the race has raised 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 proceeds for the Sunshine Camps.”

The 29th Annual Schlotzsky’s Bun Run will take place Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. CT at South First Street in Austin, near Auditorium Shores. Additional events during the Schlotzsky’s Bun Run include the race day expo and the Lil’ Bun Run 1k that starts at 7:30 a.m. As an added treat, Schlotzsky’s will stay true to its fun, quirky and unique roots by setting up stations along the race route known as “The Taste of Schlotzsky’s.” The first station will host the brand’s made-from-scratch bread, and the other will feature Schlotzsky’s mouth-watering samples of Cinnabon® Classic Rolls.
