Five Thousand Meters: Nothing Comes Easy

When: Thu., Sept. 1, 7-9 p.m. 2016

Ever wondered what it takes to be the kind of runner who can knock out a 5K in under 13 minutes? Besides being amazing and slightly crazy? Join the Independent Film Society of Colorado for a screening of Five Thousand Meters: Nothing Comes Easy, a documentary created by Colorado College filmmakers that follows nine athletes as they push their bodies to achieve a coveted slot on the 2004 U.S. Olympic team. Through personal interviews and exhilarating full-length footage of the qualifying race, you'll experience the excitement, determination and heartbreak of striving for gold. The IFSOC is also excited to welcome guest Olympians Leonard Korir (specializing in the 10K), Shadrack Kipchirchir (10K) and Hillary Bor (3K steeplechase), who will be in attendance. 7-9 p.m., Tim Gill Center, 315 E. Costilla St., free, socialmedia@ifsoc.org, ifsoc.org. — Bridgett Harris
