two new minnesota marathons

That's right - not one, but TWO new marathons are coming to Minnesota in 2009.

The Stillwater marathon will be held May 24, 2009 & the Minneapolis marathon will be May 31, 2009. Full details on the Strib.

I'm not an avid marathoner, but I can't see it hurting anything.

The only problem I see is that these are in the spring. Most people prefer to train in warmer weather and prefer classic marathons. That's the nice thing about TCM. You can train all spring and summer.

And not to be super nitpicky, but I read a little into the Minneapolis Marathon - no finisher tshirt?! You get a finisher's jacket - sorry, but in June, I don't really want a jacket. Also, for an inaugural marathon, $85 is a bit much. Especially in this economy, for those of us who love to run Grandma's, it's going to be one or the other - paying $85 and $95 for two marathons within a month of each other is just not going to happen for most people.

I'll wait until next year to see what bugs they have to work out.

I'm running Minneapolis and Grandma's. Grandma's and Twin Cities are so well organized I think this 'inaugural' marathon will be a bit of a shock by comparison. "What do you mean there's no bus at the end to take you back?!"

St. Paul, Minn.sportsbook his weekend is the unofficial kickoff of the running season in Minnesota. One of the state's most popular races, the Get in Gear, is this Saturday.
Paulette Odenthal is the director of the race, which starts in Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis.
She said she's expecting as many as 7,000 participants, possibly a record turnout for the 32-year-old event.bet nfl She said it may be part of a growing trend for runners in the Twin Cities. We have another boom for running," Odenthal said. "It's not so much the racers, as it was in the late 1970s and early '80s, as much as it is the answer to many people who put it on their 'bucket list, sportsbook for a marathon, or just the answer to a recreation that's a little more cost effective than other things."
Dave Eckberg is hoping to get 4,000 runners to a brand new race, a new marathon along the St. Croix River near Stillwater, on May 24.
It's a spring version of the popular Lumberjack Days race he'll put on in July. http://www.enterbet.com Eckberg thinks there is untapped demand for more well-organized running events. "It's because people are more aware of health and wellness," said Eckberg. "I think people are more aware of eating well and exercise, and I think a running program is part of that."
