5.10K Road Race and Fun Run | Technological Leadership Institute

Date: April 10, 2017 - 6:30pm

Location: Coffman Memorial Union

The Medical Devices Center (MDC) at the University of Minnesota is hosting the 2017 Design of Medical Devices Conference (DMD) April 10-13, 2017 at the Commons Hotel and McNamara Alumni Center. To kick off the DMD Conference, the MDC will hold a 5.10k Road Race and Fun Run on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 6:30 pm. TLI is putting together a group of current students, staff, faculty and alumni to participate in this event.

The race is open to all levels of runners and walkers and will be a great opportunity to represent TLI, build connections and, mostly, to have fun! The race will begin in front of Coffman Memorial Union and wind through the scenic University of Minnesota campus. 

The cost of participating in the Road Race and Fun Run is $10 for current students and $20 for alumni. It includes a race t-shirt, post-race refreshments and a chance to win prizes. In addition, those running on the TLI team will receive a special t-shirt created by TLI specifically for our participants.

The four-day DMD conference consists of workshops, symposiums, scientific poster sessions and technical/scientific sessions on a huge array of topics including global regulatory harmonization, rehab technology, cyber security, drug delivery devices and more.
