We at Twin Cities In Motion have spent much of the past year working with our permitting municipalities and agencies, the State of Minnesota, and medical and crowd science experts to determine how we can best provide an in-person racing experience at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend this October. While all of the details aren’t finalized yet, we remain optimistic that an in-person event will take place and are committed to providing a safe return to large-scale racing in the Twin Cities that follows all relevant guidance and also ignites everyone’s inner athlete.
What you will see at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend this fall:
- Reduced field sizes
- Mask-wearing requirements except for while racing
- Social distancing requirements
- Spectators discourages and spectator access limited to certain areas
- Reduced touchpoints when possible
