Good weather for the 16th Annual Med City Marathon

ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- There was a bright and clear sky Sunday morning, with a slight breeze. A beautiful day for the 16th Annual Med City Marathon.

About 1400 runners showed up to compete in the 5K, half marathon, or full marathon races.

Organizers at the event estimated they will take in between $20,000 to $30,000 in donations. All the money will go towards the YMCA's Strong Kids and mentor programs.

Runners at Sunday's event came in from all over the country to participate.

Melissa & Christine, Twin Cities Marathon runners, say, "We heard other people had done this one. It's small, it's well-run, it's quaint, easy down and back to the Twin Cities."

Beside the personal satisfaction of completing the race, the runners were rewarded with a medal, food and water, and a t-shirt.
