What You'll Get
The Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue bridge in downtown Austin is the spring and summer home to some 750,000 bats with up to 1.5 million bats at the peak of the bat-watching season. Each evening around sunset the Congress Avenue bats emerge like a black cloud from the crevices of the bridge. Covering the countryside in search of food, it is estimated that the bats consume from 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects.
On a casual 5k running tour, departing at 7:30pm, you will explore some of Austin's most famous haunted landmarks including the Driskill Hotel, the Governor's Mansion and, the Congress Avenue bridge, where you will witness the exodus of the largest bat colony in North America.
