Faces in the Crowd

Twin Cities In Motion recognizes participants with unique and inspiring stories through its Faces in the Crowd program. 

Share your Story

Throughout each year we ask runners to share their stories of inspiration, decication, and transformation. We in turn share the stories with local and national media, on our website and blog, and through social media. 


If you're running one of our events and have a story to tell, we'd love to hear about it! Submit your story now or email TCM's Media & Communications Manager Charlie Mahler at
