Run Internacional – The U.S.-Mexico 10K returns November 16

After a disappointing cancellation last year, the Run Internacional — The U.S.-Mexico 10K is back, with a picturesque binational route and a new finish line.

The fourth edition of the Run Internacional begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, November 16 in El Paso and ends across the border in Ciudad Juarez.

“Two cities and one community come together in Run Internacional,” race officials shared via a news release. “The cross-border 10K is about the unique greatness of the largest borderland in the world, and illustrates how one community, united by an international boundary line, blends itself into one region.”

The cross-border run starts in El Paso next to the Stanton Street Port of Entry at Olivas V. Aoy Avenue and South Mesa Street. The course winds past landmarks such as Southwest University Park, the Roderick Artspace Lofts, San Jacinto Plaza, the Mills Building and Segundo Barrio before crossing into Juarez at the Stanton Street Bridge.

In Juarez, it passes landmarks such as the Plaza de Toros bullring, the Old Customs House (where the first U.S.-Mexico presidential meeting took place in 1909 with William Taft and Porfirio Diaz), Museo de la Revolucion, and the Juarez Cathedral.

The race finishes at a new location, the Monumento JRZ, in Juarez, just a short walk from the Paso del Norte International Bridge.

Volunteers will help runners return to El Paso, on foot or by shuttle, from the finish line to the bridge.

Registration is available online. Additionally, anyone who registered for the canceled 2018 Run Internacional and did not request a refund is automatically registered for the 2019 U.S.-Mexico 10K.

Run Internacional — The U.S.-Mexico 10K is presented by the El Paso Community Foundation in partnership with the City of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez.

The 10K is one of several events celebrating our border area, including the Borderplex Alliance’s 2019 U.S.-Mexico Border Summit on November 7, the large-scale binational art installation Border Tuner November 13-24 in El Paso and Juarez, and the Two Sides of the Border exhibit, presented by renowned architect Tatiana Bilbao and Texas Tech’s Ersela Kripa, from November 9-December 6 at the El Paso Museum of Art.

Organizers Announce Annual ‘Run Internacional: The U.S.-Mexico 10K’ Canceled

On Wednesday, officials announced that the previously postponed bi-national Run Internacional -The U.S.-Mexico 10K had been canceled.

“The federal, state and local agencies on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border are valued partners in carrying out the race,” said Eric Pearson, President of the El Paso Community Foundation, which manages the race with the Ciudad Juárez Sports Commission.

“It is a great example of cross-border cooperation, and CBP is an important part of the equation.” The race would be impossible to stage without the personnel and logistics support, Pearson added.

Last year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials asked that the race be postponed, citing their limited resources given current conditions on the border.  Race officials say that now, in the wake of the current limited shutdown of the U.S. Government, the El Paso Community Foundation and race organizers decided to cancel this year’s race.

The 10K — which winds through the shared downtowns of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez — was scheduled for November 3, 2018.  The 2019 International 10K will be in November.

Runners who registered for the 2018 race can carry over their registration for the 2019 race, or they may request a refund beginning Thursday, January 3, 2019.

To request a refund, please send an email to 10k@epcf.org the name on the credit card, the name(s) of the participant(s), and the date of registration.

Those who did register in 2018, including those who have already received refunds, may pick up a commemorative 27-oz. Run Internacional water bottle while supplies last at Up and Running (3233 N. Mesa, Suite 205) Registrants are asked to bring a copy of their registration e-mail.
