Statement from Twin Cities in Motion:
Today’s Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and Medtronic TC 10 Mile races are cancelled due to EAS Black Flag weather conditions – Extreme and Dangerous Conditions. The latest weather forecast update projects record-setting heat conditions that do not allow a safe event for runners, supporters and volunteers.
It saddens Twin Cities In Motion and its partners to be unable to hold the races that runners have been pointing toward for months, but the safety of participants and the community will always be our primary concern. Extreme heat conditions can tax both runners and our emergency medical response systems. We ask the entire running community to come together for the safety of everyone involved.
