What a friendly race from the start. Everyone at the expo was more than helpful and accommodating when uncertain about things and wanting to swap shirt sizes. During the race, the pit stops were fully staffed and smiling from ear to ear; the spectators were abundant throughout; and the young girl at mile 24 handing out bracelets saying "You've got this" got me to the finish! Post race, there was ample staff to point you in the right direction, food to restore all those lost carbs and nutrients, space to stretch (or collapse), and seating to rest the weary legs.

Description

The Twin Cities Marathon (TCM) is an annual marathon in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. The race is often dubbed The Most Beautiful Urban Marathon in America. The TCM was first run in 1982, and typically takes place during the first weekend in October. It is one of the top 10 largest marathons in the US. In 2006 the race agreed to its first corporate sponsorship, with Medtronic, Inc. The official name of the marathon changed in 2006 to Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon (MTCM).

In addition to the marathon, the MTCM has expanded to a full weekend of events providing opportunities for runners and wheelers of all ages and abilities. Sunday events for adults include the Medtronic TC 10 Mile, or Shortcut to the Capitol. Medtronic TC Family Events take place on Saturday for children and adults of all ages. Saturday's races include the TC 10K, TC 5K, Diana Pierce Family Mile, Toddler Trot, Diaper Dash, and Mascot Invitational. In addition, Medtronic and the marathon's organizers sponsor a one-mile road race, for anyone from novices to professionals.
