About Women Run the Cities

In September 2007, MNCREW, Minnesota Commercial Real Estate Women, held the first annual Women Run the Cities (WRTC), designed to encourage and support women of all ages to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle while promoting networking among professional women. MNCREW is a growing organization of over 230 leaders in the commercial real estate industry.

The first Women Run the Cities drew approximately 1,000 participants. Since its inaugural year, WRTC has grown to nearly 4,000 women and girls -- making it one of the Twin Cities' most popular all-women running events! In 2012, ESPNW named WRTC one of the top five best races for women and the event was voted “Favorite Run, Walk or Bike for a Cause” by the Minnesota Women’s Press.

In 2017, Twin Cities In Motion acquired Women Run the Cities from MNCREW. In a unique partnership between the two organizations, MNCREW continues its affiliation with the event it created as planning and execution partners, while the event joins TCM’s year-round portfolio of running events in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The event supports The Link, a nonprofit supporting at-risk youth in the Twin Cities, and CREW Network Foundation, the philanthropic arm of MNCREW’s national organization.

Both Twin Cities In Motion and MNCREW look forward to continued success and growth of WRTC during its second decade!
