Minneapolis, MN



Sunday, August 21, 2011

Event Details

The "Twin Cities" are set to host to the second annual running of the 13.1 Marathon Minneapolis in the late summer of 2011, a race that will take its place as the sixth of the year among a series of eight "13.1 Marathon"-themed half marathon events across the country, a series that also includes races in Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Miami Beach, Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale, along a course that will take runners and walkers through a number of the city's most notable sights and attractions.

Both races in the event, which includes a half marathon and a 5K, are open to runners and walkers, and will start and finish in downtown Minneapolis. Those participating in the half marathon will have three and a half hours to finish the race, which will be limited to 3,000 entrants. The race also will serve as a fundraiser for Team World Vision, a non-profit organization that seeks to improve the lives of children and communities in Africa.
