The Associated Press says that more than 28,000 participants will compete in weekend events for the annual event.

Runners begin the race at the Metrodome, loop around city lakes and a roadway along Minnehaha creek before crossing the river and moving down St. Paul's Summit Avenue to finish at the State Capitol.

Drivers should be prepared to use alternate routes to avoid closed streets. No traffic will be allowed while runners are on the course.
