Walk Run - AANA Nurse Anesthesia Annual Congress

2015 Fun 5K Walk/Run, September 1 in Salt Lake City

You will not want to miss this opportunity to participate in an amazing journey while running/walking through breathtaking scenery of the canyon. The majesty of the mountains, aesthetic beauty and wildlife 
sightings are sure to provide you with an exhilarating experience like never before.
The course starts on a slight uphill by the Capitol building, and then heads to Gravity Hill. The road is paved, winding down to the entrance of City Creek Canyon, then uphill to the top of 11th Avenue where a gorgeous view of the Utah State Capitol awaits. Runners will retrace their steps back to the start where there will be replenishment beverages and treats, and a breathtaking view of downtown Salt Lake City.
 Walkers, runners, families, friends, and children welcome; children 15 and under free. Registration required (see below).
