Considering a virtual event?

Our network of connections allows us to gather insights and best practices being used in virtual races across the country. During these uncertain times, we can put that knowledge into action for your virtual event(s).


We offer a range of services, tailored to your needs:

  • Race timing and results
  • Permitting for event, stage, liquor, food, etc.
  • Route planning
  • Logistics
  • Registration processes
  • Vendor resourcing
  • Volunteer recruitment and training
  • Athlete recruitment
  • Staffing
  • Consulting and event post-mortems
  • Contingency plans for force majeure situations

Safety is always part of the deal.

We receive ongoing FEMA training in emergency preparedness and disaster response — including crowd management, so you can rest easy on the big day.

Responsive, detail-oriented, and organized for your peace of mind.

We treat your event with the care and dedication it deserves. That’s why we always offer:

  • Quick response times, usually within 24 hours or less
  • Regular status updates via email as work is completed
    and other relevant information — so you’re always informed
  • Operations manuals for all contract workers and clients
  • Post-event wrap-up notes so learnings can be documented
    and carried on to your next event


What our clients are saying:

We engaged Twin Cities In Motion’s Custom Event Services (TCM) to provide race management services for our Girls on the Run Fall 5K. We host a large 5K event which includes a 5K run as well as other pre- and post-race activities. TCM was a great partner in ensuring the smooth execution and safety of our 5K run. TCM worked closely with the City of Bloomington to ensure all pre-race logistics and permitting were complete for our event.

The 5K route was developed in detail with consideration for providing a great experience for our runners and their safety. TCM provided us a 5K operations manual with extensive detail on the race day plan and timing. All TCM staff that attended the 5K were courtesy, knowledgeable and executed the race with a high level of professionalism. TCM's professionalism, attention to detail, flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile to make things work are unmet in the industry. We look forward to continuing to work with TCM for our future 5K events.
