The Fluid 5K Run

Thursday, March 28, 2019 | 7 am

Runners! Please meet at 6:45 a.m. in the Plaza Lobby Entrance of the Sheraton, which is also the main entrance to the hotel registration area and lobby.

Come one, come all! Participate in the Fluid Five, a 5K fun run/walk that not only gets you outside exploring the downtown Denver area, but which benefits the Eleanor Ely Memorial Scholarship to help volunteer monitoring coordinators (or others in need) attend future National Monitoring Conferences. The event will take place on Thursday morning, March 28 at 7:00 am. The cost to participate is $30, which guarantees you a race t-shirt. You can also select the “non-racer” option to get a t-shirt, but not participate in the Fluid Five event, or can simply make a donation to the scholarship fund.
