Twin Cities Marathon registration to open two months early
Courtesty of Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon
Every year you say you're going to run the marathon, and every year you waffle until April, when the race gets full and registration closes. Well, good news! This year you only have to waffle until February. Officials for the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon have announced that registration for next year's race will open two months earlier than usual--on February 2 instead of the traditional late April sign-up. Organizers said the reason is to allow runners around the world more time to make travel plans and include the Twin Cities on their schedule.
The marathon will take place October 3, 2010, with 11,000 runners expected. The event usually reaches that cap within a month after registration opens. You can find out more information about the race here.
