There is perhaps no city better suited to running than that of Austin, TX. With their seemingly endless miles of trails and active population, it’s a perfect city for runners and athletes of all types.
The Feetures' team is lucky enough to visit Austin at least once a year and if you’re like us you know the best way to explore any city is by putting on your favorite socks and lacing up your running shoes and getting out on foot.
There is perhaps no city better suited to running than that of Austin, TX. With their seemingly endless miles of trails and active population, it’s a perfect for runners and athletes of all types. Austin prides themselves in keeping it weird and there have been many times they’ve upheld the standard (like the time we were out on a run and saw Santa Claus riding a horse down the street).
