IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT SAFETY AND SECURITY
With the tragic events that occurred in Boston earlier this year, we are taking as many precautionary steps as we can to keep the Mankato Marathon safe for everyone involved. With that, we have a couple of important things for you the participants to note:
1. ALL UNNATTENDED BAGS left anywhere on the grounds will be confiscated.
2. The Runner Bag Drop will be heavily monitored, and all Mayo bags used for the Runner Bag drop are subject to search.
3. ONLY Mayo bags which participants receive at packet pickup will be allowed into the Runner Bag Drop.
4. The Runner Bag Drop is ONLY for 10K, Half and Full Marathon Participants.
We are looking forward to a safe event for everyonee!
