This 7-mile course is nearly completely seaside, beginning in Woods Hole with the first three miles on narrow, hilly, winding and tree-shaded roads. The most iconic part, according to the race’s general manager Jennifer Edwards, comes right after mile one when runners pass Nobska Light, a picturesque, historic lighthouse perched on the southwestern tip of Cape Cod and overlooking Martha’s Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands. The final four miles open up on the flat right alongside Martha’s Vineyard Sound, where a small steep hill indicates the final half-mile of the race. As runners crest the hill, they’ll see a giant American flag flying overhead, and they can see themselves cross the finish on the JumboTron. From there, the race is all downhill to the finish along Falmouth Heights Beach. General Registration opens May 8, 2020 at 9:00 AM – May 17, 2020 at 11:59 PM Registration
In this point-to-point course, you’ll tour two cities for the price of one. The race starts in downtown Minneapolis, then crosses the Mississippi River into St. Paul, where you’ll finish at the State Capitol Grounds. The course bills itself as the most beautiful urban marathon in the country, and it might just live up to the hype—the route loops around four lakes and parallels the river, giving runners a nature fix in the middle of two big cities. Registration will open in early March 2020. https://www.tcmevents.org/events/medtronic-twin-cities-marathon-weekend-2020

Channel your inner Rocky as you run by many of the famous sites featured in the movie—including, of course, the iconic steps at the Philadelphia Art Museum, in view of where the race starts and finishes.
