Date:3/26/2008

- City's longest-running 5K scheduled for Sunday, April 13; long-sleeve t-

AUSTIN, Texas, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- For the 26th year in a row, Austinites will get their buns in gear for the annual Schlotzsky's(R) Bun Run(R), the city's longest-running 5K that hosts a current average of 5,000 competitive runners, casual joggers, walkers, dogs and onlookers of all ages for plenty of fitness and entertainment.

Scheduled for Sunday, April 13 beginning at 7:45 am at South First Street near Auditorium Shores, the 2008 Bun Run is organized by the Young Men's Business League (YMBL), and all proceeds benefit Austin Sunshine Camps, YMBL's program for at-risk and disadvantaged youths. Austin 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. The Bun Run raises an average of $50,000 annually for the camps.

This year, race organizers put a different twist on a Bun Run staple by holding the first-ever long-sleeve t-shirt design contest. Voters in the online contest chose from five finalists' creations, and ten random participants received free Bun Run entries. The winning design will be revealed the weekend of the race, with the artist scheduled to receive the $1,000 grand prize during the opening ceremony. The other four finalists each won $100.

Additional events during this year's Bun Run include the pre-race expo from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday, April 12 and the Lil' Bun Run 1K on the same date at 1 pm, both at Auditorium Shores.

Registration forms are also currently available at local Schlotzsky's locations as well as 24 Hour Fitness and all RunTex stores.

About Austin Sunshine Camps

Established in 1928 by the Young Men's Business League of Austin (YMBL), the Austin 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 and 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.
