Runners, Take Your Marks! For the Old Town 5K!

The Leander Chamber of Commerce is excited for this year’s 5K presented by Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, the annual kick-off to the Old Town Street Festival! Taking you through historic Old Town Leander, you can set your own pace. Whether you choose to burn up the course with blazing speed or stroll with friends, you will be sure to enjoy being the first ones through the lanes of vendors and activities.

All entrants will receive a commemorative shirt and finisher’s medal! But be sure to sign up soon as this event usually sells out! Sign up here.

The chipped-timed course is mostly flat and very fast, with many runners getting a PR. Whatever your speed, come ready for fun!

Festival Canceled: 5K Continues

The Old Town Street Festival will no longer take place in 2020. We would have loved to put on another memorable event this year, however, with the uncertainty surrounding the current situation in Texas, this decision is the only responsible solution. The health and safety of our fans, artists, partners, staff and the entire Leander community remains our highest priority.
