Seeking Artist

The Mankato Marathon is offering $500 as a commission for the completion of the commemorative poster design for the fifth annual Mankato Marathon on October 19. The Marathon Merchandise Committee is looking specifically for a visual concept that represents the fifth anniversary of the Mankato Marathon.

This is a wonderful opportunity for an artist to contribute to a significant piece of the marathon. The commemorative poster is an integral piece of any marathon’s merchandising because runners enjoy collecting the prints at each of their races.  Much like the bibs or running chips, the poster is often kept as a reminder of the runner’s accomplishment.

To be considered for the commission the artist must first submit an application which can be obtained here Go>



Get inspired with our Runners’ Stories

Inspiration comes to runners from many avenues–personal goals, health issues, other’s example and tragedy are just a few of the influences.
We are proud that Mankato Marathon runners want to share their stories of boldness.
