A runner from Victoria, Minn. finished first for the women at the 32nd annual Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon. KMSP reported that Annie Bersagel, 30, crossed tbe finish line with an unofficial time of 2:31:11, about a 5:46 pace.
Nick Arciniaga, 30, was the winner in the men's division. He won after moving to the front with about one mile spare, in an unofficial time of 2:13:33, running an average 5:06 per mile. He lives and trains in Flagstaff, Ariz.

Skies began to clear as thousands of runners began their journey to the finish line Sunday morning. KARE 11 offers a live stream of the finish line.

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.
