Register For Kids City XC Today!
The Twin Cities Track Club (TCTC) is excited to announce the sixth season of the youth cross-country league in Minneapolis and St. Paul. This year's league runs from August 13th thru October 3rd and is open to boys and girls entering grades 3-8 in the fall of 2019. Given the rather large age-range, practices and meets will likely be split into smaller groups based on age and/or ability.
There are six sites available - including Boom Island, (*NEW IN 2019), Como Park, Highland Park, Linden Hills, Lake Nokomis, and the West Metro (Minnetonka). Each program will meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 – 7 PM. The season will culminate with an All-Twin Cities championship meet in Saint Paul at Como Park on Thursday, September 26th, with distance options of 1k, 2k and 3k. Find the location closest to you and sign your child up today!
Coaches & Curriculum
Each of the programs will be directed by TCTC athletes, community runners, and parent volunteers – all eager to share their passion of running. In addition to preparing the kids physically to compete in meets, the program will also focus on the mental aspects of the sport, various race strategies, the importance of both the individual and the team, and what kids can expect if they decide to compete at the next level. We will emphasize having fun by incorporating relays, obstacle courses, and other fun activities into our training program. Read more about our passionate coaches!

Need-based grants are available to those who cannot afford the registration fee. Each participant will also become a TCTC member and will therefore be covered under the club’s insurance. In addition, TCTC will provide background checks for all program directors, coaches and volunteers to ensure the safety and well-being of the children.
