Minneapolis and St Paul, Minnesota, USA September 30 – October 1, 2023 Registration Closed

The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon is an annual race being held for the last 40 years (since 1982) across the twin cities of Minneapolis and Minnesota. With a plethora of options in race distances, it offers something for toddlers to the eldest age groups and from amateurs to pro-athletes.

It is one of the top 10 largest marathons in the US and is called “The Most Beautiful Urban Marathon in America” mainly due to the innumerable parkways, lakes, rivers, and tree-lined boulevards across the racecourse.

The MTC Marathon has a course certified by USATF and World Athletics and race timings run on the course are Boston and Olympic Trials qualifier-eligible.
