(MINNEAPOLIS) – Weather conditions cancelled the 2023 Twin Cities Marathon.
According to the Twin Cities in Motion website, Sunday’s 10-mile and marathon races were cancelled “due to EAS Black Flag weather conditions – Extreme and Dangerous Conditions. The latest weather forecast update projects record-setting heat conditions that do not allow a safe event for runners, supporters and volunteers.”
Marathon organizers say the safety of participants and the community is their primary concern.
“Extreme heat conditions can tax both runners and our emergency medical response systems,” a statement read. “We ask the entire running community to come together for the safety of everyone involved.”
Those registered for the race are asked to expect an update regarding possible credit for the cancelled event by the end of the day Thursday.
