Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring

April 23 – 24, 2021

Get in Gear 2021 will be a virtual event.

Get in Gear Events

Event Director’s Welcome

At the time of this writing it has been 9 months since the cancellation of the 2020 Get in Gear events, due to the pandemic, which has impacted what we all have known as our normal everyday lives.  My heart goes out to our community of runners that represent every aspect of life in your varied jobs, your community and your loved ones.  In this way we are all one in our combined healing.

The Get in Gear 2021 has been launched as a virtual Get in Gear until such time that protocol and permissions are such that we can move forward with honor and integrity.  It is our hope that we may be able to provide a hybrid event that would incorporate a limited in-person version and we will keep our registrants informed as we turn the corner into 2021 and potential new developments.

We are working to provide a great virtual experience for our 2021 registrants which will represent the 44th Annual Get in Gear events. Please join us for this virtual celebration as we continue to conquer the challenges along the way to another in-person celebration of the spirit of the Get in Gear.

We thank you for your loyal support.  It is our participants that have made this long-time community race into what has been known as the Twin Cities Annual Rite of Spring since 1978 and for that the gratitude runs deep.
