Thanks, Twin Cities! The spectators and volunteers are what make the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon “the most beautiful urban marathon in America.” Your music, posters, cheers and words of encouragement are what gets some of us up those hills and over long miles. You are greatly appreciated. See you next year!
