MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — More than 19,000 runners are expected to compete in the 30th annual Twin Cities Marathon.

The 26.2 mile race starts at 8 a.m. Sunday at the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. The route winds down parkways near the chain of lakes on the west side of Minneapolis, down Minnehaha Parkway to the West River Parkway before it crosses Franklin Avenue into St. Paul.

The race finally finishes at the State Capitol grounds.
