Known as the Gateway to the Rio Grande Valley, Edinburg, Tex., is a city of approximately 81,000 people on the north shore of the Rio Grande River across from Mexico. Each year it hosts the All-America City 10K, a world-class race which includes many invited elite athletes, many of them from Africa.
The race provides runners with a flat, fast out-and-back course through the streets of Edinburg. Fernando Cabada, former U.S. record holder for the 25K on the road, is something of a hometown hero in Edinburg -- his grandparents come from that area and Fernando, who was born and raised in Fresno, Calif., has run this race.
