TC Kids Challenge - 2019

Get the Kids off to an Active Start!

TC Kids Challenge

Kids earn a special TC Kids Challenge medal by running with us in February and May!

Getting your kids active this winter and spring is as easy as:

1. Sign them up for the TC Kids Challenge.

2. Set them up with a free Medtronic TC Kids Marathon training plan.

3. Watch them soar into the new year full of energy and fitness!


Our mission is getting kids active -- and by offering you savings, we hope you will gift the feelings of pride and accomplishment that come with achieving a goal by paying it forward.

With the TC Kids Challenge, you'll save $10 on the race entry fees. Will you consider selecting "Donate to Friends of TCM" to give a child who might not otherwise afford it a race entry? Your $10 donation helps a child run for free at one of our events.

Click "DONATE TO FRIENDS OF TCM" in registration to gift a race entry to a local child!
