New Route in 2015

The Mankato Marathon is excited to announce a change in the finish line for the 2015 10K, Half, Relay and Full marathon routes. Runners will now cross the finish line at the intersection of Front Street and Liberty next to the Public Safety Center.

There are a lot of benefits to this change. It will be safer for pedestrians; it will reduce traffic disruptions on Riverfront Drive; and it will provide the opportunity to showcase Mankato’s recent Front Street developments. The runner’s chorale and post-race area will be amidst the local businesses and outdoor patios on Front Street, making for a fun and unique post-race celebration with great ambiance.
