MINNEAPOLIS -- Be a part of the family fun during Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend. In addition to the Marathon and TC 10 mile on Sunday, there are events for the whole family throughout the weekend.

The Medtronic TC Family Events offer something for every member of the family, from a 10K to the Diaper Dash. All events take place on the State Capitol grounds, near the Marathon finish area.

2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the Diana Pierce Family Mile. This event is one where the entire family can run together. Registration is still available for the Family Mile and all other events on Saturday morning.

Participate in one (or all!) of the fun events. Play great games and visit family-centric booths in the Family Activity Tent, cheer for TCM mascots Harry & Shelly as they compete in the Mascot Invitational, and cheer for all the runners at the Finish Line.

Health & Fitness Expo: Friday & Saturday at River Centre in St. Paul. The Expo includes exhibitors, gear and seminars, in addition to race number/packet pick up. All programs are free and open to the public. Stop by the Deal Chicken booth to win prizes in Plinko. Also, stop by the American Refugee Committee's Be A Star for Somalia booth and add to their paper chain of support for Somalia.
