“I’m already signed up to run the marathon
and I plan on running every marathon in Mankato
until my legs fall off so count me in for this year
and every year to come!”

– Leon Weckwerth, September 2013

“I’m very excited to come up there & run again. I am originally from the area and still have relatives to visit. I live in Kansas now and I’ve run the half every year you have had it and it is one of the best events I’ve ever done – and I’ve run a LOT of them!”

– Dee Boeck, October 2013
