2020 Twin Cities In Motion Internships

The Twin Cities In Motion (TCM) Internships serve as part of a high caliber team, which has planned and executed the region’s premier running events since 1982. Our mission is simple - ignite everyone’s inner athlete. 

TCM is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that organizes 9 races with 27 distances throughout the year, including the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, to provide opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, and experiences to live an active, healthy lifestyle. Collectively, TCM and its charity partners that fundraise at TCM events give back more than $1.1 million annually to a variety of causes.

We have multiple 2020 internships across a broad spectrum of disciplines including Race Operations, Communications and Experience, Social Media and Marketing, Corporate Partnerships, Volunteer and Community Outreach and Registration.  If more than one of these openings aligns with your skills, we encourage you to identify all positions of interest and share that information with us.
