2021 Twin Cities Marathon – Family Style

TCIM Kids Fieldhouse 2019-444

The Twin Cities Marathon weekend is October 2nd and 3rd in 2021. Each year, Twin Cities in Motion (“TCM”)  is still offers fun ways to make it a family event. Stay tuned for 2021 details, but here is an idea of what you can expect.

Start in July by Downloading a
Family Training Schedule and Log

Want to be able to run a 5K together (That’s 3.1 miles)? Download a printable kids 5K training schedule and a training log for 12, 8 or 4 weeks. This is one way you can promote a healthy lifestyle for the whole family. Even the little ones could get involved – either riding in a stroller or riding their bikes for these workouts.

Don’t worry about it being too much, TCM has created tools to help kids (and their parents) to “take it one mile at a time”. Below are last year’s schedules and logs.

  1. PRINTABLE KIDS’ 9-week 5K TRAINING SCHEDULE (Start by July 31st to be ready for the TCM Weekend)
  2. 12-WEEK TRAINING LOG – Start July 10th.
  3. 8-WEEK TRAINING LOG – Start August 7th.
  4. 4-WEEK TRAINING LOG – Start September 4th.

They’ll be offering other activities all months long. Follow Twin Cities in Motion on your favorite social media to get all the details.

Don’t Forget the Health & Fitness Expo

Normally held in St. Paul, 2020’s Health & Fitness Expo was held virtually. We’ll update 2021 when we know the details.


Beyond the Twin Cities Marathon

Maybe you would like to start running as a family, but want to start a bit smaller? To help with this, we feature races along with other family-friendly sporting events on our Family Sports Page. While this is a rough year for gathering-type events, some races are still happening or going virtual. You can sign up and complete the virtual races on your own.
