Best Short Distance Road Race 
(10K or shorter)
1. Statesman Capitol 10K
The largest 10K race in Texas pulls runners and walkers out of their homes to enjoy Austin scenery and the fresh spring weather. About 18,000 came out for the 2015 event, and it only continues to grow in popularity.
2. Thundercloud Turkey Trot
3. Run for the Water

Best Long Distance Road Race 
(Longer than a 10K)
1. Austin Half/Marathon
This race has grown with the city and is an event that Austin residents look forward to. Taking the winning title for yet another year, the love for the Austin Half/Marathon can be seen on participants’ faces as well as enthusiastic spectators for all 13.1 and 26.2 miles.
2. 3M Half Marathon
3. Run for the Water

Best Short Distance Triathlon 
(Sprint or shorter)
1. Rookie Triathlon
If you’ve been too intimidated to tackle a triathlon, the Rookie Triathlon is a fantastic place to start. Newbies can get a feel for racing a run, bike and swim in this event.
2. Jack’s Generic Triathlon
3. CapTex Triathlon

Best Long Distance Triathlon 
(Olympic or longer)
1. Longhorn Austin 70.3
This Ironman has one of the only indoor finishes on the circuit. We might be biased, but we think if you’re going to do an Ironman, why not compete in the great city of Austin?
2. Kerrville Triathlon
3. TriRock

Best Off-Road Event
1. Rogue Trail Run Series
If you love to run and you consider yourself the outdoorsy type, sign up for one (or all!) or Rogue’s races. 
2. Spectrum Trail Run
3. Capt’n Karl’s Trail Series

Best Adventure Race
1. Spartan Race
Intense obstacles and fitness fun come together on the Spartan Race course. The shortest course is over three miles but contains more than 20 obstacles. Competitors can expect to get muddy, jump over fire, and crawl through barbed wire.
2. Tough Mudder
3. CG Games

Best Bodybuilding Competition
1. Texas Shredder Classic
A legendary event in the bodybuilding world, likely due to the drug-free standards expected of the competitors. The show spotlights hard work and the reward of a natural fitness approach to training.
2. Naturally Fit Games
3. Adela Garcia Classic

Best Fitness Competition
We’d be lying if we said we weren’t flattered! Thanks to everyone who voted for our event. We are always working to make adjustments and looking for new ways to keep this as Austin’s favorite fitness competition.

3. Fittest Games
