It's not too early to begin thinking about our end-of-season challenge. Which Twin Cities franchise will send the most women to our end-of-season celebration events on August 25th? Register now and help your team win. One city will win a night out for their whole team! Plus, get early bird pricing AND $7 off race entry if you register for the banquet and then race by 5/31. RSVP on our Facebook Event page to help spread the word about our big day to your team!
One team who has the highest percentage of currently enrolled members signed up for the banquet and race by 8/15 will win, and decide as a team their night-out destination. A gift card will be provided based on the size of the team.

On your first group run after May 20, the last thing you’ll want to hear someone say is: “It was so much fun! The course was great. The medal was beautiful! The Caribou coffee samples were delicious and my toddler son loved the biscuit at the finish line!”* Because, unless you were running Twin Cities Orthopedics’ Women Run the Cities, presented by PNC Bank, you’ll know you missed out on something special — namely, an all-women’s celebration of fitness and community that’s as empowering as it is fun.
And if someone else adds: “Beautiful course!! Lots of volunteers! Love seeing people in their yards cheering us on,” that probably won’t go over well either.
But, if you sign up for the race now, (it’s not too late and the weather forecast for Sunday looks great) you’d be able to chime right in with something like: “Incredible positive supportive environment all along the course — before, during, after the event. Excellent volunteers.”
In that case, you wouldn’t mind if someone else added: “Fabulous just Fabulous!” because, of course, you’d have run the 5K, 10K or 10 Mile event, experienced its unique spirit, and celebrated with your friends at the finish line festival that includes a brunch bar and a complimentary mimosa! But, if you didn’t sign up, hearing someone say: “Overall, this was a GREAT EVENT! I will for sure be back next year with our team!” it might leave you thinking that a whole year is a long time to wait for the next Women Run the Cities.
Join the celebration, join your friends, join your Mom’s on the Run teammates for Women Run the Cities on Sunday, May 20 at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis. You won’t regret it.

When a group of moms meeting in a local park decided they wanted to spice up their post-baby fitness journey by training for a 5K race, Moms on the Run was born. The first class was held on April 12, 2008, in small town Forest Lake, Minn. Today, Moms on the Run is a nationally franchised running company with 46 locations in six states — and growing.
