Manchaca United Methodist Church is thrilled to announce its annual 5K Run and Kids Dash. Formerly called the Manchaca United Methodist Church Spring Feat, this race has been re-named and re-imaged.  Our commitment to raising money to support South Austin Schools (Menchaca Elementary School, Paredes Middle School, and Akins High School), however, remains unchanged. 

This year's race is 80s themed, so dress in your 1980s best and come join us at this family-friendly event hosted by Manchaca United Methodist Church in Manchaca, Texas, to benefit these South Austin Schools!

The race course is new, too!  We'll start and finish at Manchaca United Methodist Church.  We've set a goal to pack at least 200 Manna Bags and we'll need your help to do it during the Kids Dash. Also, we've added a few more age brackets AND teams this year! Join us for a race day that will be great for families, teams, and individuals!
