Training Races

mmlogo

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. Below are when and where other runners are gathering for group runs. Others are welcome to join! If you know of another group run outing, share it with us: marathon@visitmankatomn.com.

 

Below are some local training groups to get you ready for the Mankato Marathon:

  • At 7 a.m. Saturdays from the Mankato Family YMCA (1401 S Riverfront Dr, Mankato, MN 56001); meet below the steps between the Y and Mankato West parking lot
  • At 5:30 p.m. Mondays from River Valley Running in Mankato. Go>
