MINNEAPOLIS, MN (December 10, 2009) – Registration for the 29th annual

Twin Cities In Motion executive director Virginia Brophy Achman.
"In the past, we've opened registration in late April," said Achman. "The
earlier registration date will give marathoners from around the world the
opportunity to include the Most Beautiful Urban Marathon In America® in
annual travel plans," said Achman. The marathon takes place Sunday,
October 3, 2010 and typically fills its spring-time registration within a
month. Registration is online only at mtcmarathon.org and is capped at

was recently named among the top 20 best marathons in Runner's World
Magazine's 2010 Marathon Guide.
