We at Twin Cities In Motion have spent much of the past year working with our permitting municipalities and agencies, the State of Minnesota, and medical and crowd science experts to determine how we can best provide an in-person racing experience at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend this October. While all of the details aren’t finalized yet, we remain optimistic that an in-person event will take place and are committed to providing a safe return to large-scale racing in the Twin Cities that follows all relevant guidance and also ignites everyone’s inner athlete.
What you will see at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend this fall:
- Reduced field sizes
- Mask-wearing requirements except for while racing
- Social distancing requirements
- Spectators discourages and spectator access limited to certain areas
- Reduced touchpoints when possible
- If you are interested in learning more about what types of changes are being considered for this year's event, click here. Otherwise, check back this summer for more details and specific plans.
I can no longer make the event. Can I transfer to a friend?
Yes, you may transfer your race entry to a friend by August 26, 2021 at 5 p.m. After that date your registration is non transferable. Please follow this link to initiate a transfer. There is a $15 transfer fee.
I’m signed up for the 10K, but I’d rather do the 5K, or marathon...
If a participant wants to transfer from the 10K to the 10 mile (virtual only, available in July) or marathon, (held on Sunday October 3), they will be responsible for the $15 transfer fee AND the difference in entry fees. If a participant wants to transfer from the 10K to the 5K, they will be responsible for the $15 transfer fee AND no refund will be made to account for the difference. The deadline to switch distances is August 26, at 5 p.m. After that date your registration is non-transferable. Click here to begin the process. Participant shirt sizing is subject to availability at the time of transferring.
*Participants may not transfer into the in-person Medtronic TC 10 Mile as registration is done by a drawing process and would be unfair to those we turn away from the drawing.
*There is no transferring into races that are sold out, and TCM does not maintain a waiting list.
I’m currently signed up for the in-person 10K. Can I switch to the virtual event, or vice versa?
If a participant wants to transfer from the in-person 10K to the virtual 10K they will be responsible for the $15 transfer fee AND no refund will be made to account for the difference.
Deadline is August 26, 2021 at 5 p.m. After that date your registration is non transferable. Click here to begin the process.
Can I receive a refund or defer my entry to another date?
Refunds are available within 48 hours of registration. This policy is valid until 5 days before the event. To request a refund, email firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of when you submitted your registration. If accepted, you will be refunded your race entry fee; online transaction fees are non-refundable.
Registration for the 2021 TC 10K is non-refundable, except if state or local authorities mandate race cancelation due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, in which case TCM will provide a partial refund in the amount of $10, convert all in-person registrants to the virtual event, and mail out all race amenities.
You may walk or run at a comfortable pace. The finish line will remain open until 11 a.m. which allows for a 16-minutes-per-mile pace. After 11 a.m., the course and finish line are closed. The City of Minneapolis permits issued to TCM do not allow the roads to remain closed to traffic beyond this limit. No race services including medical, aid stations, or traffic control are available beyond this pace.
Strollers or pets are not permitted at the event. Thanks for understanding.
