The Expo is held the day before the Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon, TFCU Half Marathon, and 5K, which are to be run Feb. 16, 2020. The races begin in Downtown El Paso and finish at Southwest University Park, home of the El Paso Chihuahuas baseball team and El Paso Locomotive soccer club.
At the Expo, racers, spectators and running enthusiasts learn about the races, pick up race numbers, and visit various booths to learn about running, health and fitness. Thousands of runners, walkers and their families and friends attend the Expo every year.
The El Paso Marathon races are organized by the El Paso Marathon Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to health and fitness that uses proceeds from the races to benefit select area charities. Since the first marathon 12 years ago, more than $250,000 has been raised for local El Paso-area charities.
The next El Paso Marathon races will be Feb. 16, 2020. People interested in running, volunteering or sponsoring can go to the marathon’s website
