Description

The 2023 Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon will highlight the historic sites of El Paso County, including the San Elizario, Socorro and Ysleta missions, the Playa Drain trail, and the El Paso Coliseum.
            The marathon course through the Mission Valley returns for a second year Feb. 12, 2023, in a runner-friendly flat course that goes through some of the most interesting communities of the El Paso region.
            The race begins at San Elizario High School, which is situated in the town of San Elizario, the town credited with hosting the first Thanksgiving in what is now the United States in 1598. San Elizario was also the original county seat when El Paso County was officially declared in 1850. The race passes by San Elizario Chapel in the town plaza, near the original jail cell that Billy the Kid broke into to free his friend, Melquíades Segura, in 1876.
            From San Elizario, the race continues through Socorro, one of the original communities of El Paso County which was founded in 1680 by Piro Native Americans seeking refuge from the Pueblo Indian Revolt in what is now northern New Mexico. 
            Runners pass by the picturesque Socorro Mission along the Mission Trail before continuing on the road to the community of Ysleta. Founded in 1682, Ysleta is home to  the Ysleta del Sur Tigua tribe and site of the Speaking Rock entertainment venue. The Ysleta del Sur Pueblo is the oldest community in Texas; the Tigua Tribal Council is the oldest government in the state.
            From Ysleta, runners continue to Ascarate Park and Lake, one of El Paso’s oldest community parks and its largest outdoor aquatic area. The 420-acre park features lakes (once a loop of the Rio Grande), a golf course, swimming, fishing, and parks for community sports.
            Finally, runners head the final 5 miles from Ascarate to the El Paso Coliseum, a multi-purpose arena that has been used for concerts, rodeos, boxing, ice skating and hockey, and even dog shows and flower shows.
            This year will mark the 17th running of the marathon, which at various times has now been held in nearly every neighborhood of the El Paso region.

            Held on the same day as the Raiz Federal Credit Union Half Marathon and the Spine & Rehab Specialists 5K, the marathon and its associated races have attracted runners from nearly every state in the United States and from countries as varied as Mexico, Norway, Liberia, and Germany.

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 and county 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.
