10K Race Takes Runners Across the U.S./Mexico Border

The cities of El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico, have teamed up for a second year of the International 10K, which took place on Saturday, Aug. 6. Runners had to carry a passport with them as they crossed the U.S./Mexico Border over the Stanton Street Bridge. The race started in El Paso near the International Bridges Department and then wound its way past historical and culturally significant landmarks—including the Old Customs House where the first U.S./Mexico presidential meeting took place in 1909 between William H. Taft and Profirio Diaz—before ending with a climatic finish atop the Paso Del Norte Bridge in Juarez.
