With more than 3,000 registrants that first year, GET IN GEAR was to become Minnesota's premier fitness event with an annual field of over 6,000 participants making it Minnesota's largest short distance race, largest kid's run, and rated as one of the top 100 road races in the nation by Runner's World.

Race Director: Paulette Dow.
