Five Rocks Amphitheater • 200701 Co Rd P GeringNE  69341 Organized by Monument Marathon

About this event

Take in the sites of the beautiful and historic Oregon Trail on this mixed surface adventure course. Runners and walkers of the Monument Marathon have dubbed us the friendliest, most supportive, and most well-organized race they have participated in! Whether you're a 50 stater, a maniac, or a first-timer, we want you to have the best experience possible and experience the hometown hospitality of the Monument Marathon. We are a homegrown local event featuring excited and friendly volunteers, incredible course support, amazing views, and the kind of charm only small-town races can provide. All proceeds from the Monument Marathon go to support student scholarships to our most in-need and promising students at our local community college. Have a one-of-a-kind experience and know that you're supporting a great cause at the same time!
