BENEFITING: Austin-oita Sister City Committee
Since 1990, the Austin-Oita Sister City Committee has promoted and heightened public interest in and appreciation of the culture, people, languages, business, and products of the cities of Austin, Texas and Oita, Japan. We have a strong marathon exchange program supporting citizen runners of Austin and Oita. In 2018, Oita runners will compete in the Austin Marathon. In 2019, Austin runners will compete in the Oita-Beppu Mainichi Marathon. We are raising funds to help support these citizen-to-citizen exchanges that help promote goodwill and understanding between our running communities, cities and nations!
