TCM’s Run Curious Series is free and open to anyone. Our goal is to make running accessible to all and provide new runners a solid foundation to start their journey.
Development and Education
Our goal is to seek and build relationships with experts, community leaders and existing run clubs to lead programming and community unity.
From Shakeout Runs to Marathon training, we will provide race training and education for runners of all backgrounds.
Run Club Invite
The Twin Cities Motion Center will be open from 7:45 AM -10:30 AM on the 3rd Saturday of each month (except on May 18, due to our PNC Women Run the Cities Event) for Twin Cities Run Clubs and those interested in joining a club to drop in for water, restroom use, socializing and connecting with others in the Twin Cities running community. Come and go at your leisure, no registration required!
