Town Lake Long Run

After you’ve conquered the shorter loops around Lady Bird Lake, it’s time to make the full 10.1-mile loop. This loop is great for marathon training and tempo runs as it is relatively flat and there are mile markers every ¼ of a mile. We start our route at the “0” mile marker at South 1st Street. There is a parking lot here with restrooms and water fountains. Nearby is Auditorium Shores Park where lots of events and concerts are held so if there is an event you may need to park at Zilker Park instead. The sections of the trail east of Congress Ave. are much less crowded and can be a little complicated to navigate as it takes to the sidewalks around the old power plant and then again along E. Riverside Drive. Construction is underway to build a boardwalk along this south side of the lake to eventually close the 1-mile gap in the trail and get pedestrians off of the busy streets.
