Just like the Minnesota state bird, the common loon, a TC 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 Loony Challenge includes the three events during the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend - totaling 19.3 miles.
