Available Races

Voted one of the top races for women in the country, the Women Run the Cities is the premier women's race in all of Minnesota. The race features a 5K, 10K and 10 mile distances. It's an all women's affair, but all experience levels are welcome. You'll be at home if you are an experienced runner in your 100th race, or you're taking to the start line for the first time. Plus, enjoy a post-race brunch bar with your girlfriends to celebrate your morning!


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. In partnership with Women Run the Cities, we invite participants to raise funds for their favorite non-profit cause. Create a fundraising page today!

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