‘Naming of the Bulls’ Contest Kicks Off 2nd Annual Downtown Running of the Bulls 5k/Fun Run

The Downtown Management District (DMD) will be hosting the Second Annual Downtown Running of the Bulls 5k and fun run, and are adding a contest to this year’s event.

The run is presented by Corona Premier, and will take place on October 20

This year the DMD will have a naming contest inviting the public to help name all eight (8) bulls.

Via a Wednesday news release, officials announced, “Each bull has been carefully recruited for their willingness to relocate and participate in our fun run, but they refuse to use their real names for fear of public backlash in the event of an unforeseen goring. We’re asking the public to help us find new names!”

DMD officials be giving away free tickets to the run, and all it takes to qualify for a chance to win is participation.  Participants need to comment on the upcoming posts asking for a name suggestion, on both their Instagram and Facebook pages with a suggested name for that particular bull.

“Suggesting a name in the comments sections will automatically enter participants for a chance to win a free ticket to the run…our bulls are proud professionals so be kind with the pseudonyms, please,” officials added.

The contest will run from September 27th to October 2nd, with all names announced on October 3rd, in addition to the winners of the run tickets.

Registration is open online; runners and walkers of all ages are welcome to run among the bulls with participation tokens now being given in addition to medals for top finishing runners in seven (7) age brackets and three (3) fastest teams.

Registration for $30 includes a “build your own” breakfast burrito from Porkie’s BBQ, an exclusive draw string bag, t-shirt, and access to the activity zone, following the run.

The DMD is actively seeking volunteers interested in participating in the Running of the Bulls. Volunteers will have an opportunity to support downtown in a fun event and will receive a free t-shirt, and meal for their efforts. Interested volunteers should call the DMD at (915) 400-2294

To register for the event visit the webpage or follow the Facebook event page.

Free Fitness Classes Offered Once Again in Downtown El Paso

Last year, a small group of professional fitness trainers began offering free fitness classes in San Jacinto Plaza. With the initial success and, with the support of the Downtown Management District (DMD), the fitness classes are back for 2018.

“Downtown El Paso should always be the place to find community activity, and the DMD is happy to support health-minded El Pasoans in their effort to offer free fitness classes,” said DMD Executive Director, Joe Gudenrath.

Downtown El Paso Fitness offers these free fitness classes in San Jacinto Plaza, and Cleveland Square Park, all in the Las Plazas Arts District, every Saturday (weather permitting) from 7:30am to 9am until September 1st, 2018.

The workouts are given by certified trainers in areas such as, calisthenics or yoga but we encourage the public to visit the Downtown El Paso Fitness Facebook Page for weekly updates on class instruction styles and instructors.
