(RWire) Athletics: Twin Cities Marathon, Inc. Adds 10K Race to Event Weekend

Inaugural TC 10K offers further opportunity to take part in Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon weekend, October 2-4

MINNEAPOLIS - (June 3, 2009) - As part of National Running Day, Twin Cities Marathon, Inc. has announced the addition of a new 10K running event, which will headline races on Saturday of Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon weekend (October 3-4). The TC 10K will start the day, known as "A Day of Fun for the Whole Family", as an opportunity for those who'd like a challenge to the 5K distance that has been part of race weekend for more than 20 years.

"We recognize participants of marathon weekend continue to challenge their endurance and increase their distances, so we are hoping the addition of this new 10K will offer runners a bridge between the 5K and the popular Medtronic TC 10 Mile, which takes place on marathon Sunday (October 4)," said Twin Cities Marathon, Inc. executive director Virginia Brophy Achman. "An addition to race weekend is something we know we've got space for on Saturday and the continued strength of this sport in Minnesota, and on marathon weekend, means we have the chance to include even more participants in this annual fall marathon weekend tradition."

Registration for the TC 10K is available online at www.MTCMarathon.org and via paper registration, as well as day of opportunities to register. Cost for the inaugural 10K is $25. The race starts at 7:30am in front of the State Capitol.
