The Twin Cities Marathon (TCM) is an annual marathon in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. The race is often dubbed "The Most Beautiful Urban Marathon in America." The TCM was first run in 1982, and typically takes place during the first weekend in October. In 2006 the Marathon agreed to its first corporate sponsorship. The sponsor was/is Medtronic, Inc. The official name of the marathon changed in 2006 to, "Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon" (MTCM). The 2007 MTCM took place on October 7, celebrating its 26th anniversary.

In addition to the marathon, the MTCM has expanded to a full weekend of events providing opportunities for runners and wheelers of all ages and abilities. Additional events for adults include the MTC 10 Mile Run and the State Capitol 5 km Fun Run/Walk. Events for children now include Kids’ One-Mile & Half-Mile Fun Runs, Toddler Trot and Diaper Dash. In addition, the MTCM sponsors a competitive 1-mile road race, typically held the last weekend of April.
