Everyone is welcome! Past runners, new runners, curious runners and the El Paso community is invited to help us kick off the 2011 El Paso Marathon. Whether you’re assembling a team or plan on meeting a personal goal by participating in the marathon, the kick-off party is a great way to get inspired and get training. Meet like-minded runners, get training tips, cash in on the discount and have a great time.
The El Paso Marathon will take place on Sunday, March 6, 2011, and we’re getting the party started now to kick start your training. “For runners, this is a reminder that their training should be getting more formal now, and what better way to celebrate the start of your training for El Paso’s premier 26.2 Mile fiesta than a fiesta?,” said race director Mike Coulter. New runners will need to start slow and increase mileage little by little. Seasoned marathoners are already in training.
If you’d like to be a part of the excitement but aren’t planning on running, come down to the kickoff party and sign up to volunteer with the El Paso Marathon.
The El Paso Marathon organization continues to grow in strides each year. What started in 2006 with 1,100 runners has been on a healthy growth path--we’re expecting close to 4000 people to take to the streets in 2011!
