The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend, October 4-6, is fast approaching and has something for everyone. Sunday is the big day with the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and Medtronic TC 10 Mile. And Saturday is filled with events for kids of all ages with the TC 5K, presented by Fredrikson & Byron, TC 10K, and Medtronic TC Family Events.
But before your big race day, check out the Health & Fitness Expo at the Saint Paul RiverCentre on Friday October 4 (11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.) and Saturday October 5 (10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.). At the Health & Fitness Expo, you can buy official 2019 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon gear, visit over 100 exhibitors, listen to speakers at the Seminar Stage (presented by Star Tribune), pick up your race bib, and much more. If you are running the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon or the Medtronic TC 10 Mile on Sunday, you will need to stop by the Expo in order to get your race bib as there is no race day packet pick up available.
We partnered with our platinum sponsor, MedExpress Urgent Care, to create 250 first aid kits that were donated to PROP (People Reaching Out to People) food shelf in Eden Prairie, MN. Moms on the Run members who were at our Celebration Evening on Aug. 23 had the opportunity to put together a first aid kit and write a handwritten note of encouragement. We're grateful for all who participated! The kits were delivered on Sept. 6.
As a neighborhood medical center, MedExpress Urgent Care is proud to announce a giving back opportunity for Moms on the Run Celebration attendees. With all necessary items provided, you can each build a first aid kit that will then be to donated to PROP, a nonprofit fighting food and housing instability for families in need. MedExpress will also have available items that allow you to write and add an encouraging message to those receiving the kits. PROP offers food programs that nourish the body, plus comprehensive services to support and nourish minds and MedExpress is proud to help assist in fulfilling their needs. We invite you to join us in giving back to the community and share basic wellness.

Name the activity and you'll most likely find a retreat catered to it. Running is no different. Whether you simply want a getaway with your gal pals or a way to take your running to the next level, a running retreat is both beneficial and fun.
Moms on the Run is debuting its first run retreat this fall, led by our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson. Carrie typically attends and speaks at three to four running retreats each year. Read more on our conversation with Carrie to find out why our running retreat will be worth your investment!
