  • You may transfer your Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend race entry prior to 11:59 PM on Monday, August 19, 2024, to another person or may switch to any distance (except for the in-person TC 10 Mile) that is not sold out. After August 19, 2024, your registration in non-transferable. 

    Transfers are conducted through your Race Roster account (helpful instructions here). Participant shirt sizing is subject to availability at the time of the switch.   



    • There is no switching into races that are sold out, and TCM does not maintain a waiting list. 

    • Participants may not switch into the Medtronic TC 10 Mile because registration is done by a drawing process and it would be unfair to those we turn away from the drawing. 

    • Person-to-person transfers are not permitted for the TC Half Marathon for More.

  • Yes. One runner may pick up another runner's packet.   


    Your representative will need a completed  Packet Pick Up Authorization Form and their photo ID in order to pick up your packet. Your representative will also need to have the runner’s race number. 


    NOTE: only the representative's photo ID is required, not the participant’s.  

  • Strollers are permitted in any 5K (or shorter) distance. Please indicate that you intend to run with a stroller on your registration form. You will sign a special waiver and be given a special "Stroller Bib" at packet pick up.   


    While we love our four-legged friends, we ask that they cheer you on from the sidelines and you reunite with them after exiting the Finish Controlled Zone. Thank you for your understanding. 

  • The Event Alert System, or EAS, is a color-coded method of quickly communicating to participants the potential for adverse weather conditions that can affect the race event. A series of color codes is used to indicate the increasing severity of adverse conditions as outlined here

    At TCM events the EAS flag color will be shared in the pre-race email, a packet pick up, at the Start Line, and on course during the event. Please pay attention, as flag color may change during the event.

  • Whether you’re looking for a one-day experience or a year-round leadership opportunity, we offer a variety of meaningful roles suited to help you reach your personal and professional goals. From course marshals to fluid stations and finish line volunteers, we have something for everyone!
