Both the half marathon and the full marathon share the same starting line area near the campus of Minnesota State University-Mankato, at the intersection of Stadium Road and Monk Avenue. From there, runners in the half marathon follow what is basically a large, U-shaped point-to-point route toward Sibley Park, including a long stretch along the city’s Red Jacket Trail. Runners finish the race near Mankato’s Hilton Garden Inn hotel and the Verizon Center.
