Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring

Get in Gear Events

Get in Gear has Joined the Twin Cities In Motion Family of Events

Get in Gear has been transferred to Twin Cities In Motion, the nonprofit that organizes Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend and a year-round calendar of events. The transfer became official on August 3, 2022, after thoughtful consideration by the Get in Gear, Inc. Board of Directors and Executive Director Paulette Odenthal.

Twin Cities In Motion is eager to respect and nurture the values, history and traditions of “Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring.” Like Get in Gear, TCM has its own long history in the Twin Cities running community. Please welcome them to the event you have made a part of your running life. 

The 2023 edition of Get in Gear is set for Saturday, April 29 at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis. Registration for the event will open on December 1. Find more information at tcmevents.org.


Get in Gear has been Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring for over 40 years, richly steeped in history and tradition since its inception in 1978.

We take pride in being a part of the running industry in our community and in continuing to provide a high quality and well managed event.

The Get in Gear is managed by a board, Executive Director, race operations committee, a small seasonal part-time office staff and hundreds of volunteers that dedicate their time and energy to making the Get in Gear Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring.
