Runners, start training, there’s a new half marathon coming to Mankato this spring.

Organizers are deeming it the sister event to the Mankato Marathon. The race, put on by Final Stretch, features both a 5K and a half marathon, and no need to worry about tackling big hills. The route stays up on Mankato’s hilltop and swings through the Singing Hills Trail.

The race kicks off April 8th and 8 a.m.
