The 5th annual Platte Valley Companies Monument Marathon now has over 500 runners registered and more are expected to register prior to race day this coming Saturday.
Event organizer and WNCC Foundation Executive Director Jennifer Rogers says the additional runners will come from the new 5K run that has been implemented this year.
Rogers reminds the public they are also invited to Marathon’s Expo Friday from noon to 9 at the Gering Civic Center. There will be over 30 vendors, the largest group ever , and there will be a pasta feed from 5-9 p.m. for only $10. Then after the marathon Saturday, the Broadway Bash rib cook-off will take place downtown from 4-8 p.m.
