The El Paso Marathon is a great community event that draws thousands of runners from El Paso, Mexico, New Mexico and the country and we look forward to doing it again in 2013,” said Race Director Mike Coulter.

The Courses

The marathon route starts atop the Franklin Mountains on the northern edge of the city, meanders down Transmountain Road alongside desert landscapes, passes through Fort Bliss (the first official marathon to run through a military installation) to the beautiful Austin Terrace neighborhood and finishes in historic Downtown El Paso. The elevation drop of 1, 519 feet makes the Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon one of the fastest 26.2-mile courses in the nation. The marathon course is USATF Certified and is a Boston Marathon qualifying race.

The half marathon will begin and end at the marathon finish line located in downtown El Paso’s Union Plaza District and will take runners to the beautiful Austin Terrace neighborhood and back, while 5kers will enjoy a run through historic downtown past the Magoffin Home, San Jacinto Plaza and the Plaza Theater. All races will end at El Paso’s Union Plaza District.
