Mankato Marathon 2014 Charity Program

In 2013, the Mankato Marathon started the Mankato Marathon Charity Program and helped raise nearly $17,000 for three local charities.

This year four charities including Girls on the Run, BackPack Food Program, Project for Teens and Camp Sweet Life have been chosen. In addition to having champion runners raising pledges, the four programs have potential to raise additional dollars through registrations. Registrants will be able to elect to donate to any or all of the programs when they register for a Mankato Marathon race.

Training from Start to Finish Line

It’s well known that training for a marathon involves more than just a pair of good running shoes and determination. A successful training program takes into account the entire runner – mind, body and soul. As an added benefit to our runners, the Mankato Marathon has worked with experts in each of these areas to create a well rounded training section. Go>
