The annual Moms on the Run 5K/10K and Kids Run is a great way to celebrate your summer training season. This race serves as the big summer finale for our Twin Cities Moms on the Run locations, and a destination event for our runners nationally! Grab your teammates; both in-person and virtual runners are eligible for our team challenge and the opportunity to win our post-race pizza party (virtual runners; we can bring the pizza to you)!

All women are welcome to join us! Walkers welcome. This event is fun for all and is not exclusive to members. Bring the whole family to enjoy the festivities: food trucks, music, face painting, crazy hair, sign-making and kids’ races!  Register today!

Are you not racing this year or are you coming to cheer on a runner?  View our volunteer sign up page to see information about the many opportunities to volunteer. You’ll find brief descriptions of each position and time commitment will be listed.  We couldn’t host this event without volunteers and appreciate your help!

Award Certificates Participants in our 5K/10K in-person race will be awarded certificates for 1st – 3rd place finishers in 7 age categories for each event, and prizes for 1st in each category, for women and youth. Must be present at our awards ceremony to receive awards. Participants in the virtual run will not receive awards.

Refund Policy There will be no refunds for any reason. Contact by 8/15 to arrange a change to your registration such as: distance changes, transfer race registration to another runner, or switching between virtual and in-person (subject to capacity limits). There will be an administrative fee applied to these requests, which will be $10 for distance changes & $15 for registration transfer. Offering your bib to an unregistered participant is not allowed due to legal and liability concerns as well as that fact that it could affect age category results for all participants such as resulting in the rightful winners not receiving their earned prize.

Weather Information The Moms on the Run 5K/10K will be held rain or shine. However, for safety reasons, we will cancel the in-person events due to lightning or other severe weather, and unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds due to costs already incurred. Take care to dress for the weather conditions.

After Party Be sure to stay after the race for the age category awards, DJ, prize drawings, food trucks and our biggest award of the day: Inspiring Member of the Year
