Platte Valley Companies Monument Marathon set for 9th Year

SCOTTSBLUFF—Planning has begun for the 2020 Platte Valley Companies Monument Marathon, scheduled for Sept. 26 at 7:30 a.m. With the current global health pandemic, the race will likely look different than in previous years, but the Monument Marathon Steering Committee feels confident that they can put on another quality event in spite of the challenges.

The Platte Valley Companies Monument Marathon is the largest annual fundraiser for the WNCC Foundation which supports students, programs, and facilities at WNCC. In its nine years, the Monument Marathon has raised nearly $400,000 for scholarships and program support for WNCC students.

This year the marathon has had unique challenges in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Marathon organizers are working with experts to follow directed health measures and create a safety plan for the expo and race day.
