3rd Annual Governor’s Cup
Again this year, the winner of the Governor's Cup receives a brand-new AED, compliments of Medtronic. In it’s 3rd year, the Governor’s Cup is a way for Twin Cities Marathon, Inc. and the Governor of Minnesota to recognize the hard work that emergency responders, police, fire and ambulance workers have dedicated to our weekend of events over the last 27 years. It is also a chance for the governor to thank all of you for all that you do for the citizens of Minnesota. The race also recognizes our combined commitment to state-wide health and fitness.
The race works like this: times are collected from each team member, and the lowest three times from each team are tabulated for a total team time. The lowest team time wins the competition, and that team takes home the Governor’s Cup. The Cup is then passed from city to city, team to team, each year, based on the race outcome. Email Kristine@mtcmarathon.org to get your team registered!
5K Course Certification and Timing
The 5K Run/Walk course is certified by USA Track & Field. TCM, Inc. will be using the ChampionChip® Timing System, provided by ChampionChip Minnesota. This enables participants to get net times. Chips must be picked up and tested at packet pick-up, as you will not be timed without a chip. Within two weeks after the race, you will receive your results card with your official time and place.
An event for the whole family, the Mile starts and ends on John Ireland Boulevard, near the State Capitol. The race follows the 5K course for 1/2 mile and returns to finish at the 5K/Marathon finish line.
