Registration prices increase as the field fills from $18-$33. Register early for the lowest price!

How can I see if I'm registered?

Use the online registration confirmation tool to verify entry to the 2019 Medtronic TC 1 Mile.

Can I receive a refund or defer my entry to next year?

Refunds are available within 48 hours of registration. This policy is valid until 5 days before the event.

Can I transfer my 1 mile entry?

Race registrations for select TCM events may be transferred to another person through the automated TCM transfer process. Registrations may only be transferred within the designated transfer period for each event and within the same event and distance as the original registration. The Medtronic TC 1 mile transfer deadline is May 3, 2019. Additional fees and restrictions may apply including ineligibility of some registrations completed using an invitation code. Once race numbers are assigned, they are never transferable. 

Email registration@tcmevents.org with questions.

Can I switch waves?

Yes. If you wish to run in a different wave than the one you registered for, you do not need to let race officials know; your chip will register your time in the new wave. Note: the professional athlete waves are reserved for invited athletes only.

Can I pick up my friend or team's packet?

Yes. Please have ready their race number and the correct spelling of the person's name. Registrants will be notified of race numbers in the pre-race email following the end of online registration. Picking up others' packets is limited to FOUR at a time if others are waiting; thanks for understanding. Corporate Team captains may contact us to inquire about team pick-up options.

Can I participate with a stroller?

Strollers which display an assigned "Stroller Bib" are permitted in the Recreational Wave only. Strollers are not permitted in other waves. For security and safety purposes, all persons with a stroller or baby jogger in the Recreational Wave must be able to maintain a 25-minute-per-mile pace and agree to the guidelines listed in registration for participation with a stroller.
