The 2021 Mankato Marathon presented by Mayo Clinic Health System announces changes in response to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz’s announcement on May 13 regarding loosening of the state’s public health guidelines.


The loosening of COVID-19 restrictions has enabled event organizers to make a number of positive changes to the Mankato Marathon race weekend. Adjustments to the event include increased registration capacities for races; the addition of the KidsK and Marathon Relay; and participants will once again have the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary beer following their race along with enjoying activities during Saturday’s post-race experience.


The 12th annual Mankato Marathon weekend will be held October 15-16, 2021
