2019 TC Kids Cross Country Fun Run

A note about the race...


Spring has finally arrived and Twin Cities In Motion (TCM) is busy planning for the 13th annual TC Kids Cross Country Fun Run, held May 18th at Como Park in St Paul!  We would love to see you in May!  For the run, kids are grouped by age into a wave and invited to run a half mile, one mile, two miles or 5K.  Each participant determines their own level of fitness and can run whichever distance is best for them. We will once again offer an optional obstacle section of the course for those that want a little variety in their runs.  NEW this year, we will have an activity zone with the Mobile Ninja Warriors rig and their inflatables. 

The fee for each event is $10 and lunch will be provided to all participants and guests for free. Scholarships are always available to those children who might be unable to participate due to financial challenges.  Busing is also available to the metro-area (11 county) schools or programs who request them. Turn the day into a school/group adventure and stay for a visit to the Como Zoo and Conservatory, ride the carousel or visit Como Town Amusement Park.

If you are looking for a 5K training program to prepare your students, we have a free online program for your use.

We have a new registration platform this year.  The registration link is From there you click on the word registration to get started. Your school will be listed in a drop-down menu. If you don’t see it, please let me know so we can add your group. Choose your type of registration and complete the form. For those needing free and reduced lunch scholarships, the discount code is 19ALLSCHOLAR.  The Promo Code is cap sensitive.  You will be asked for this toward the end of the registration process in “Review Your Order” page before you get to check out.

Participants (or whoever registers online) will receive a receipt via email and an E-confirmation with race details from Race Roster. If they don’t have email then please use your school email for the contact. If as the group organizer, you are entering the information, use your school address for the registration.

If using paper registrations is easier for your school, I am attaching the paper registration form.  You may use both paper and online registration.  If you plan to use paper then it needs to be returned to me as a group by Friday, May 10th.  Online registration cut off is Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 pm.  All Scholarship requests will be honored.

To check on your online registrations, send me an email and I will let you know how many have registered.  Parents are welcome to register and run with their child.

Could you please drop me a note saying you plan to participate by April 12th?  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We want to make sure this is an easy process for everyone and the experience a great one for your children. We are so excited to have you run with us!  Please feel free to share this email with colleagues and other teachers or groups who might be interested in this event.



To thank you for your participation in this event, we will be awarding you a $100 gift card from Dick Sporting Goods to use for physical fitness equipment for your school.
