About Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon

The El Paso Marathon is an annual running event held in El Paso, Texas since 2007. It is an official Boston Marathon qualifier. It is organized by the non-profit El Paso Marathon Foundation.

More than 2,000 runners cross the finish line each year at the annual late winter running of the El Paso Marathon, which takes the field on an out-and-back loop course from the start in El Paso Hospitals of Providence east campus and runs through the city and back to the finish.

Nicknamed “the Sun City” and “Land of the Sun,” El Paso is most definitely a sunny city, it gets more than 300 days of sunshine each year, so participants should arrive prepared for the race with shades and sunscreen.

The El Paso Marathon Foundation mission is to organize a first class marathon that promotes health and fitness in the community, brings tourism to the region of El Paso and provides support to local and national non-profit organizations.

Starting at the east El Paso campus of the The Hospitals of Providence, the course will head east on Tierra Cortez Avenue, letting runners enjoy sunrise over the Hueco Mountain to the northeast, and miles of rugged desert for as far as the eye can see. Then finish at the Southwest University Park.
