Storms force Twin Cities Marathon to cancel Saturday events

The 10K, 5K and other events have been called off for the day.

Some bad news for fans of the Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon weekend.

Foul weather has forced Twin Cities in Motion — which operates the marathon — to cancel all Saturday events, including the 10K and 5K races as well as all family activities.

"We are disappointed to be unable to host today’s event for you, but safety of participants and volunteers will always be Twin Cities In Motion’s primary concern," an early Saturday morning press release says.

Though the organization has a "no refund" policy for registrants, the release says they're offering 5K and 10K runners a $10 credit for a future Twin Cities In Motion event. Those affected will receive an email with a code and details by October 10.

Now the big question: what about the race itself? 

The Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon is still scheduled to proceed as planned on Sunday at 8:00 a.m., as is the 10-mile.

According to WCCO, it's the first time in the marathon's history they've had to cancel events.
