The Half Marathon is staged in historic downtown El Paso and continues through the Historic Austin Terrace neighborhood before heading back downtown to the finish line. This new route is sure to become a local favorite.

The Half Marathon utilizes computerized Chip timing, which records each runner’s actual running time to the second.
Race numbers and timing chips must be picked up at The Hospitals of Providence Expo Saturday, February 17th at the El Paso Convention Center from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; they cannot be mailed and will not be available for pick-up on race day. You must pick up your own race number and timing chip – no exceptions. You’ll need to show your race number to pick up your T-shirt and goodie bag.
If you do not wear your computer chip you will not be timed.
