MANKATO – Runners who register Jan. 1 to 15 for any 2015 Mankato Marathon race will receive major discounts on final race prices.

All races from the full marathon to the KidsK are on sale. Registrants for the 5K to the full marathon will see more than 40 percent savings, representing a $37 discount for the full and half marathons.

“Last year’s registration sale got our runners excited about the 2014 races. This year we wanted to catch runners even earlier, hoping to align with the timing of New Year’s Resolutions and 2015 planning,” Anna Thill, president of Visit Mankato said in a statement.

Runners can register online at or print out a paper form from the website and mail it in to Final Stretch. Mailed registrations must be postmarked no later than Jan. 15 to be eligible for discounts.

The marathon is Oct. 17-18. This accredited race is a qualifying event for the Boston Marathon and is projected to have a sixth year attendance of 5,000 runners.
