Mankato Marathon 10 Anniversary Digital for website 01


In 2010, the inaugural Mankato Marathon took Mankato by storm. We had overwhelming community support and an amazing 2,200 runners in our first year. In 2013, our numbers grew to nearly 5,000 runners from 30 states and our race started to evolve with unique additions like our Cheer Zones and the Sport Psych Team—the first in the nation.

We want to keep this momentum as we approach another year. That's where you come in. We're looking for great sponsors like you to help support this incredible event. As a sponsor, you'll be associated with a premiere event that is receiving attention from participants all over the country. You can be proud about supporting the Mankato Marathon, which is an event that promotes good health and benefits our community.
