The run is free and each finisher receives a well-deserved marathon medal.

There is also a family-friendly kids play zone at the events.  Perfect for your little ones and your spouse, waiting for you at the finish line.
 
 
I've ran one half marathon in Minnesota, and I'm looking forward to crossing Minnesota off of my full marathon list as well.  I enjoy point-to-point races, when the logistics are carefully planned out.  So, hopefully everything will go off as planned, and we can just enjoy the 4 - 4.5 hours out on the course!!
