Austin Gives Miles

Dogs Out Loud is excited to have been chosen as an official charity partner of the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon through their philanthropy program, Austin Gives Miles!

Kerms Off & RunningRegistration for the 2016 Austin Marathon & Half Marathon is now open and in honor of the race’s 25th anniversary and DOL’s exciting program expansions coming this year, we are hoping to once again double our fundraising total!

We did it last year and we know that 3rd year’s a charm.


  • You can donate or sign-up to run with us on our #everydayhero page. 
  • Race day aid station volunteer sign-up coming soon!

All runners who raise at least $100 will get a limited edition technical t-shirt to sport on race day and runners raising $500+ and $10o0+ will get gold and platinum edition swag bags! All aid station volunteers score an official Austin Marathon t-shirt courtesy of AGM + some sweet DOL swag and free race day breakfast!

Why DOL & AGM?

Like runners training for a race, DOL dogs exemplify dedication, perseverance, and a boundless and resilient spirit. They are the final group of dogs still consistently not making it out of our city shelter alive; medium-large breeds with treatable but resource intensive behavior problems. But beating the odds with a little extra training and a lot of extra heart is a challenge we can and should help them win. So lace up your shoes, open your wallet, and let’s save some big, beautiful canine lives!
