Mankato Marathon 10 Anniversary Digital for website 01




This marathon has no shortage of crowds to cheer you on including cheer teams, aid stops and spectators. Mankato has definitely embraced this as a community event and pulled out all the stops! This race is known for the finish line – Athletes get a fabulous finisher medal, and can partake in food galore, music, messages, personal photos and kids activities for the young or maybe young at heart.

The course is broken down into four legs. Each leg will be approximately 6.6 miles long. At the end of each leg of the race, there will be an exchange zone. Busses will be available to drop you off and bring you back to the Cherry Street ramp. The first person will start the race with a timing chip that will be strapped to their ankle. The person running will come into the exchange zone and transfer the timing chip from the current runner to the next runner. The new runner will then exit the exchange zone and begin their leg of the race. To get an official time the timing chip must be transferred to each runner for their leg of the race.
