Our Purpose

Our Vision: A community that engages each other through movement, making for a healthier society both socially and physically.

Our Mission: TCM exists to ignite everyone's inner athlete, providing the best-in-class experience events for everyone regardless of ability, age, or background.

Our Purpose: To provide event platforms for everyone to experience the love of moving whether they are a participant, supporter, spectator or the community at large. We do so by removing barriers to participation, supporting the running community specifically today, and by partnering with other nonprofits to help them advance their causes.

Since 1982, Twin Cities In Motion has organized the region's premier running events, including the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, a Top 10 U.S. Marathon.

TCM is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. We are proud to give back to our community by providing financial support to local youth as well as professional athletes. Collectively, TCM and its charity partners that fundraise at TCM events give back more than $1.1 million annually to a variety of causes.
