St. Paul, Minn. – March 5, 2024 – Registration for this fall’s Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend opened today, Tuesday, March 5, at 10 a.m. CST.

The registration drawing for the Medtronic TC 10 Mile, to be held on the same day as the marathon, opens June 17.

“We’re eager to open registration to the general public and officially begin the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon build-up,” Twin Cities In Motion President Dean Orton said. “The marathon already has more than 3300 entrants thanks to runners from last year’s heat-cancelled events signing up during a special entry window last fall. We can already see there’s lots of excitement for this year’s marathon weekend and anticipate serving the community at sold-out levels for both Saturday & Sunday.”

This year’s event will feature:

·         Marathon Training Program, fellow community nonprofit Run Minnesota will provide the marathon’s and 10 mile’s new official training program.

·         Renowned Spectator Support, including the Diane & Alan Page Community Cheer Challenge.
