TC Kids Run Free Program

Runners aged 18 and under run at no cost at Twin Cities In Motion events through our TC Kids Run Free program. TCM Members and Donors support the program, the first installment of a larger initiative by nonprofit TCM to make events accessible to all. 

Kids can run in either the event’s “grown-up” race(s) or in 1 mile, half a mile and pre-K-dash races held in conjunction with the event.
