Join UMMS chapter of Medicine in Motion for the TDD 5K! Money raised from this event goes to support the UMass Memorial Hospital’s NICU. After the race, we will be hosting a social at a local restaurant/bar (location TBD) for members of all chapters to meet/hangout!
The TDD 5K brings together runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages and athletic abilities to celebrate life. The fast, flat course suits those taking on their first 5k, as well as competitive runners looking for an early season PR.
The reward for your dedicated training and preparation is a race day filled with festivities designed for a fabulous race day experience, lunch from Jimmy John’s, and of course an awesome long sleeve tech shirt and finisher medal to show off.
All Medicine in Motion participants should sign up using the option “Group Purchase- Additional Paid Spot” option, fill in their information AND select “Medicine in Motion” for their fundraising team with the passcode “MIM2020”.
The start/finish area is in front of the Sullivan Academic Center. Packet pickup, volunteer check in, lunch, the awards ceremony, and the remembrance ceremony take place in the Competition Gym in the Wellness Center Building.
Worcester State University has many parking options. The most convenient parking areas for the TDD are the parking garage, the Chandler Street Lot, and the May Street Lot. On race day, there will be signage to direct drivers these parking areas.
Bathrooms are located in the Wellness Center, and port-a-lets are located in the May Street Lot.
The single loop 5K course starts and finishes in front of the Sullivan Academic Center at Worcester State University. The route is paved and mostly flat, with two gentle inclines, making it ideal for an early season PR.
The clockwise route is not closed to traffic, however the traffic is very light and the course is monitored by police and volunteers. There are two water stations on the course: one near the one mile marker, and the other near the two mile marker. A water station with light snacks is located at the finish line.
