Thanks for visiting the Mississippi River Marathon website. As of now the FULL marathon is sold out. There are still plenty of spots for the half marathon. As participants either drop out or drop down to the half marathon we will open up their spots in groups of 3-4. We're looking forward to a great 2017 race!!!
