This week on Going Public, we spoke with Brandon Hahs, who is the co-director of the Muddy River Marathon, along with Bryan Kelpe.
2021 is the inaugural year for the Muddy River Marathon, which will take place Sat. May 1. At the time of the interview, over 700 individuals from over 15 states had registered for the event. It is a USATF-certified 26.2 mile course and also a Boston Marathon qualifier race.
The Full Marathon begins at 7:00 am in Downtown Cape Girardeau along the Mississippi River at Century Casino. The course winds through the heart of Cape Girardeau and along some of the scenic routes in the city.
Local residents along the route are encouraged to participate in the excitement of race day by cheering and supporting the runners as they make their way through the course.
According to the event's Facebook page, registration ends on Wed. April 28.
