El Paso Marathon Sponsors:
EL PASO, TEXAS – TFCU, one of El Paso’s leading credit unions, has signed on as the sponsor for the El Paso Half Marathon.
“TFCU is excited to support the Half Marathon again as Title Sponsor in 2019 to promote fitness and quality of life in El Paso,” said Max Villaronga, President/CEO of TFCU.
The TFCU Half Marathon, a 13.1-mile road race, is part of the El Paso Marathon races, which include the 26.2-mile Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon and the Up and Running 5K.
The races all take place on Feb. 17, 2019. They will start and finish in Downtown El Paso.
“We’re very honored to have TFCU commit to be the half marathon sponsor,” said Mike Coulter, director of the El Paso Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K. “TFCU is a local institution that values community involvement, which makes them a great representative of what the half marathon is all about.”
The marathon, half marathon and 5K are quickly becoming the Borderland’s premier road races, and is essentially becoming the championship race for top local distance runners. Last year, more than 3,000 people ran in the races, with the most entrants taking part in the half marathon.
The races are all organized by the El Paso Marathon Foundation, which is dedicated to promoting health and fitness in the El Paso region and providing support to local and national non-profit organizations. Beneficiaries this past year included the Lee and Beulah Moor Children’s Home (for disadvantaged youth) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of El Paso. Those two groups also volunteered to help the 2018 races become the biggest to date.
