About Us

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Minnetonka Track & Field and Cross Country Association (MTFCCA) is to partner with the Minnetonka School District and Minnetonka Community Education to promote all running sports and activities throughout the district and greater Minnetonka community.  We accomplish our mission by promoting our Boys and Girls Track and Field and Cross Country programs in a variety of ways, and we raise funds for these programs throughout the year.  The annual Thanksgiving Day Tonka Turkey Trot 5K is our marquee fundraising event.  We believe that the proven lifelong benefits of running sports and activities form a vital aspect of physical and mental health and wellness for community members of all ages and abilities.

 

Minnetonka Track & Field and Cross Country Association (MTFCCA) board met on July 17, 2018 @ 7:00 PM at the Minnetonka High School to review financial statement and elect board members. Next Tonka Turkey Trot meeting is Sept. 20th @ 7PM at Minnetonka High School - writing workshop room.
