Date & Time

*February 17, 2019
Start Time: 7:00 am

Celebrating its eleventh year, the Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon, half marathon & Up and Running 5K courses will give runners a taste of the city's different neighborhoods, from upscale new developments in the east sections to the urban Victorian homes on Montana Avenue that date to the 19th century.

All three races will start and finish at Southwest University Park.

Race numbers and timing chips must be picked up at the The Hospitals of Providence Expo at the El Paso Convention Center from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m, Saturday, February 16, 2018.; 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.


A 6 HOUR TIME LIMIT WILL BE IN FORCE FOR THE MARATHON COURSE. Runners and Joggers are welcomed to participate in the Marathon Race. Although the marathon race is mainly put on for racers, we applaud all those who set out to complete the marathon distance, regardless of the pace. The race is permitted through the city of El Paso and we use officers from the El Paso Police Department to monitor traffic along the route to keep the runners safe. Our City of El Paso Permit requires us to reopen the public streets we run on to vehicular traffic after a certain time period, and thus the need for a time limit.
