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>
