Two great marathons grace the region, and both of them are Boston-qualifying races.
Runners in the El Paso Marathon, http://www.elpasomarthon.org/, swing into New Mexico and run along the Rio Grande river, with Old Mexico on one side and Texas on the other. The race begins and ends downtown. Set your training for this great race on March 1, 2009!
And pictured here, is the legendary Marathon2Marathon race known for spectacular scenery. Racers run from just outside Alpine to the small town of Marathon, Texas. Check it out at, http://www.marathon2marathon.net/ to learn more about this October 17, 2009 race.
