Local runners can now start preparing for one of the biggest marathons in the area.

Platte Valley Companies' third annual Monument Marathon will be held on September 27th this year. The full marathon is 26.1 miles long and the half marathon is 13.1 miles.

As years progress, the participating crowd has been getting larger. Organizers are hoping for an even better turn out this time around.

President of Platte Valley Companies Hod  Kosman says the course is a top reason people enjoy the run.

"We're able to showcase the friendly people, the wonderful nature and culture of this area, and the beautiful natural beauty that we are blessed with here," says Kosman. "What a great event for us to be a part of and to showcase."

WNCC foundation director Jennifer Rogers says that there are even two participants from the Netherlands this year.
