You can register for the Twin Cities Marathon starting tomorrow

Registration for a bunch of other races opens Thursday, too.

Attention runners, racing season is approaching.

If you're hoping to run the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 1, you can register starting at 10 a.m. Thursday.

It's the 36th year for the race, which begins in downtown Minneapolis and finishes at the State Capitol in St. Paul. The Twin Cities Marathon is also a qualifier for other major U.S. marathons, including the Boston Marathon.

Race organizer Twin Cities in Motion says it will be limited to 11,500 runners, and if you register before Feb. 7, you'll save some money. It's $110 to register through Feb. 6, but then it goes up to $125, according to the race website.

Charlie Mahler of Twin Cities in Motion told GoMN registration in recent years has closed in July, while last year there were a handful of spots still available marathon weekend. Here's video of last year's race.

Registration for other races opens, too

If running 26.2 miles isn't your thing, Twin Cities in Motion says it's opening registration for a bunch of other races on Thursday. They are:

  • TC 5K on Sept. 30.
  • TC 10K on Sept. 30.
  • TC 1 Mile on May 11.
  • TC Kids Cross Country Fun Run on May 20.
  • Red, White & Boom! TC Half Marathon on July 4.
  • Red, White & Boom! Relay on July 4.
  • Red, White & Boom! 5K on July 4.

If you're looking to run the TC 10 Mile that coincides with the Twin Cities Marathon, registration for the drawing opens July 7. But there's good news – race organizers have expanded the field by 2,000 runners, so 12,500 people will be able to race this year.
