Questions?

Check out our FAQ's.

How do I enter the drawing to register?

The drawing will open summer 2020.  

How can I confirm my registration?

Runners will not be able to confirm their drawing status or confirm their registration until later this summer once the drawing has opened. You will be able to confirm you have applied for the drawing registration at this link.

Look up your Bib information here. 

Can I switch from the 10 mile to another distance or transfer my entry to someone else?

You may switch your registration one time to another distance within Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend. However, transferring into the Medtronic TC 10 Mile from another distance is not permitted.

Your registration may also be transferred to another person. Registrations may only be transferred one time within the designated transfer period for each event and within the same event and distance as the original registration. The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend transfer deadline – to switch your race distance or to transfer registration to another person --  is August 2020. Additional fees and restrictions may apply. Once race numbers are assigned, they are never transferable. 

NOTE: For the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and Medtronic TC 10 Mile, we cannot guarantee placement in the first corrals to newly transferred runners, since corral capacity is limited.

View step-by-step instructions to begin a transfer. Email registration@tcmevents.org with questions.

 

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

Refunds are available within 48 hours of registration in the drawing only. To request a refund, email info@tcmevents.org or call 651-289-7700 within 48 hours of when you submitted your drawing registration. Online transaction fees are non-refundable. Refunds are not available after the Medtronic TC 10 Mile drawing is conducted. Deferrals are not permitted.

Can I pick up my friend's packet?

Yes. One runner may pick up another runner's packet. Your representative will need a completed Packet Pick Up Authorization Form and his or her photo ID in order to pick up your packet. Your representative will also have to have the runner’s race number handy. Note: only the representative's photo ID is required, not the participant.

Do I need to run the entire time?

No, you may walk or run at any time during the race. If you find that the marathon participants have caught up to where you are on the 10 Mile course, you may be asked to move over to the side by Race Officials. The finish line is open until 2:15 p.m.
