Want to Run on the Circuit of the Americas Track?

Circuit of the Americas

Travis County Commissioners are holding a public hearing this morning over granting a mass gathering permit to the Circuit of Americas and RunTex for a race at the track. But it wouldn’t be a Formula 1 race, or even a race involving vehicles.

RunTex wants to put on a 5k that would allow participants to runon the Circuit of the Americas track. The track course is 3.4-miles long, slightly longer than a 5k.

The event, planned for Saturday, Nov. 3, would also serve as a sort of open house and would allow attendees explore part of the COTA facility.

The mass gathering permit application requests use of the track area from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event may also feature live music.

The public hearing is scheduled to start today at 9 a.m. in the Commissioners Courtroom.

The Formula 1 Grand Prix is scheduled for Nov. 16-18.
