Automatic TC 10 Mile

Bypass the drawing and guarantee entry into Minnesota's most popular fall race.

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 Twin Cities In Motion events during the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend - totaling 19.3 miles.
