Who we are: 
What started out as a couple runners interested in qualifying for the Boston Marathon, the K-State Marathon Club have evolved into one of Manhattan's premier running clubs. We are K-State students consisting of various majors who love to run and push ourselves. Thousands of students run at  K-State, and for those who want more than the average 5k, join the K-State Marathon Club. Meet us by the Alumni Center at Old Stadium every Saturday at 8am for our weekly run.

Membership is free, provided you attend weekly runs and are involved with the club. 

Does the club cover race costs and travel expenses?
Travel costs may or may not be covered. It depends on which race the group is running.

You can still be a member if your schedule doesn't allow you to meet every Saturday (ie work, school commitments). The club coordinates runs throughout the week via the email LISTSERV. Come to two of these runs to make up a missed Saturday run.
