Runners take your mark... A new marathon for the city of Hastings is in the works.

The Hastings City Council held a work session last night and council members discussed the proposed marathon route. Some were concerned about closing off Highway 281. However, just a portion of the road will need to be closed citing cost and convenience.

"We don't really have to close it down for as long, but bottom line is city staff and the race organizers have gotten together, developed a good route, and I think we're close to pulling this thing off."

Krings says he's excited to get the marathon off the ground to help spread the message of healthier living in Hastings.
