Twin Cities in Motion

TC Ultra Loony Challenge

Take the TC Ultra Loony Challenge - Three Races in One Weekend, including the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon.

Just like the Minnesota state bird, the common loon, a TC Ultra Loony runner is strong, active, agile and distinctive! These runners are hardly common, though - they challenge themselves to run three races in one weekend. The TC Ultra Loony Challenge includes the three events during the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend - totaling 35.5 miles.

Registration is closed.
