MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Medtronic’s Twin City Marathon weekend returned with a bang as St. Paul runner Danny Docherty became the first person ever to win multiple MTCM titles in a single year.

According to a recent statement from event holders, Docherty secured wins in the TC 10K and TC 5K in the men’s category on Saturday. These races went on pandemic hiatus last year, and were cancelled in 2019 as well due to lightning.
