Whatever the goal you set for yourself, you can count on support from TCRC members and when you reach your goal we'll all celebrate with you! 


What sets apart the Twin Cities Running Club from many of the 2-dozen other Twin Cities metro-area running clubs?

Members say it is our openness to all runners of all abilities, including prospective runners just starting; everyone fits in -- including you!

Twin Cities Running Club members wholehearted support the goals of each of our club members -- whatever their goals might be. 

TWIN CITIES RUNNING CLUB WAS ESTABLISHED when running clubs still typically encouraged competition and catered to experienced, faster runners.  TCRC's founder envisioned a comprehensive running club with members that welcomed runners of all ages and abilities, designed to help your running - whether you’re a beginner looking to improve your health and fitness, an experienced racer looking to improve your race times, or anywhere in between.

Key Benefits Include:                                                                                    

- TCRC members and their family enjoy breakfast and conversation after a weekend morning run.

  • The WEEKLY UPDATE from our run coordinator reminds members of the date/location of the weekend run, recognizes member achievement, birthdays, and other club milestones, as well as valuable running information and lessons.
  • Weekday evening run - Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. along the Mississippi River, culminating in a gathering for food, beverage and easy conversation.
  • Weekend long run - alternates Saturdays/Sundays and allows members to work on distance goals, with water stops every few miles. Not running long these days? no problem - weekend runs include routes for shorter distances, too. At the end there is the reward of gathering for breakfast, coffee & lively conversation.
  • Speed Work - Thursdays, 6:00 p.m., SUMMER ONLY. Join the group to work on structured speed work at a local track.
  • TCRC singlets are provided to each new member so that we can spot you in your next running event.
In addition, members enjoy access to the Member-Only resources on this site, including:

- Member Directory
- Online Membership Renewal
- TCRC's Run & Event Calendar

- TCRC Channel - Member Discussion Board

MORE (Members' Other Resources):

Because our members enjoy and support each other, we reap benefits that go beyond the benefits of a TCRC membership:

Member Planned Excursions. Every year, members collectively attend running events in other cities and states; all members are welcome to participate at their own expense.

Affordable Training Advice. TCRC's member/founder, Dave Coyne, offers personalized a training programs to help members prepare for an event or to improve their running fitness. Dave is a lifelong runner himself and a coach for the Twin Cities Leukemia Team in Training for several years. He  has coached beginner and novice runners to help them achieve their running goals. 

"The thing is that Dave really focuses on the individual goal, and whatever goal you have is a good enough goal." - Jeanne Ritterson, 2017 President TCRC
