2016 Marathon Cancellation
Important notice for Minneapolis Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay runners:
 
Dear Minneapolis Marathon Runner:
 
Thank you again for your patience as we have tried to identify alternative courses for the Minneapolis Marathon. After much effort by our team and dedicated public officials, we have realized we cannot establish a new marathon and half marathon course by June 5.
 
We will be unable to stage the Minneapolis Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay in 2016.
 
We understand that you have worked very hard to prepare for your race. Our goal is to host running events that provide people with the motivation to train, prepare and lead active, healthy lives. We know this cancellation is a disappointment to you and disrupts your plans and your running life. We apologize for both the disappointment and the disruption.
 
We offer you the following two options:
 
1. A full refund of race fees
 
We offer all registered runners a full refund of your race fee plus a 25% discount on one of our future races (through Jan 2017-code will be sent to you). If you have already received your gear by mail, we invite you to keep it.
 
2. Registration in any two Team Ortho races through January 2017 plus a choice of a bonus
 
For those registered runners who want to look forward to future races (instead of a full refund), you can choose to apply your registration fee to any two upcoming races through January 2017 AND receive a bonus package choice of either: (1) a $20 gift certificate to our gear store OR (2) your 2016 Minneapolis Marathon gear and medal mailed to your home address.
 
You can choose the option that is best for you by clicking on the link below by June 5, 2016.
 
 
We have four half-marathons coming up in the next seven months.
These include:
Rio/Tiki Run on July 16: Half-marathon, 10K or 5K
Women Rock Minnesota on August 27: Half-marathon, 10K, 5K, 2.5K
