Online registration for the Mankato Marathon will close October 14.

All paper registrations for all races—full marathon, relay, half, 10K, 5K, KidsK, Toddler Trot, Diaper Dash and My Bold Walk—must be postmarked by October 10.

For any races that are not completely full, race registration will reopen from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. October 15 at the Scheels Sport & Health Expo in the Myers Field House at Minnesota State University, Mankato.

The half marathon is currently 83 percent full, and Visit Mankato President Anna Thill is optimistic about reaching the 5,000-runner goal this year.
