2019 USATF Race Circuit
Our goal is to have a team presence at all USA Track & Field (USATF) Minnesota Team Circuit races. The circuit is comprised of 10 races of varying distances and surfaces throughout the year. While not required, we encourage you to run three Team Circuit races a year. Also, we welcome everyone to come cheer even when not racing. Running, racing and cheering together is the best way to get know your teammates!
In order to participate in the Team Circuit, team members must be a member of the USATF. You are strongly encouraged, but not required, to also become a USA Track & Field member. USATF is the governing body of the sport of road, track, and trail running in the US. Being a USATF member guarantees your entry to the TC 10 Mile (bypassing the lottery) and provides discounts to most races on the circuit. To be able to score for the team on the circuit a USATF # is required. Signing up is easy - just follow the steps on the USATF website. To register, you need the Mill City Running Race Team number which is 30-0457.
