We at the Mississippi River Marathon are excited about the opportunity of selling out the marathon in 2017. Our limiting factor was the number of finishers medals we ordered based on past event numbers but we are thrilled to see the increased interest in our race!
We have decided to offer the opportunity for those who want to run, to register with the knowledge that you may or may not receive a finisher medal after the event. At the completion of the event, the medals that remain will be mailed out to those who register for this option, beginning with those who took advantage of it first. We hope to see you in February!!!
