Today marks the beginning of registration for the Twin Cities Marathon on October 3. This is the earliest registration has opened and they are expecting it to sell out quickly.
From the official press release (pdf):
“In the past, we’ve opened registration in late April,” said Achman [Twin Cities In Motion executive director Virginia Brophy 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 11,000 on a first-come, first served basis.
I won’t be running it this year. Given that I’ve been injured for almost a year and basically took 3 months off running this winter, it doesn’t seem wise to endure the long training cylce for a marathon. I wish everyone luck and I’ll probably do the TC 10 Mile if I can get an entry. I plan to focus on shorter distances this season.
