Additional Youth Running Opportunity with Twin Cities In Motion


Twin Cities In Motion, organizer of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and a year-round calendar of running events for all ages, invites young runners to join them for the Medtronic TC Family Events on Saturday, October 6. The kid- and family-friendly races will be part of the 37th Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend.

Events for youth runners include the KARE 11 Family Mile, presented by Medica, and the Half Mile, presented by KS95.  More experienced young runners can choose to run the TC 5K, presented by Fredrikson & Byron, or even the TC 10K which also take place on October 6.  Even the youngest of athletes can be introduced to running with the Diaper Dash and Toddler Trot.

In addition to the Medtronic TC Family events in the fall, Twin Cities In Motion also hosts the TC Kids Fieldhouse Fun Run each February at the University of Minnesota Fieldhouse and the TC Kids Cross Country Fun Run in May at the Como Park in St. Paul.  Runners earn participant gifts and finisher medals at the lively, fun-filled events.

Visit the Twin Cities In Motion website later this summer for details about the organization’s new kids’ race series which will encompass all of TCM’s youth events and earn runners additional awards and gifts for committing to running year-round.

Twin Cities In Motion’s goal is simple:  Ignite Everyone’s Inner Athlete.
