The University of Minnesota DPT program is springing (back) into action! After COVID prevented a 2020 and 2021 race, we are eager to hold the 5th annual Spring into Action 5K on Saturday April 30th, 2022. The day will include a 5K run/walk (or optional 2.5K walk), music, a prize drawing, and the chance to talk with current DPT students about running/recovery topics and more! Proceeds from this race go to the Foundation for Physical Therapy which allows research to be conducted in many different areas of PT - including research done at the University of Minnesota.  For more information, check out: Facebook page: 

Race:  5K run/walk or optional 2.5K walk will take place at the Front Plaza of Coffman Memorial Union (Route can be viewed on facebook event page linked above). Registration is $15 online. Day of registration will also be accepted: $20 (cash or check). Free T-shirt with online registration by April 8th.

Prize Drawing: Each participant will receive one free prize drawing ticket. Additional tickets will be available for $1 each on the day of the event. Check out the businesses that have already donated: Minneapolis Bouldering Project, University of Minnesota Bookstore, Potbelly, Jimmy Johns, Red Cow/Red Rabbit, Spyhouse Coffee, Blaze Pizza, Fresh Thyme, Pryes Brewing Company and Noodles and Company!

Timing: We will have a student timer who will record and recognize the top 3 male and female finishers. For remaining participants, this will be a self-timed race.
