Penguin in the Park 5K Run/Walk will be celebrating its 14th anniversary on March 30, 2019! After his namesake, the Penguin, John Bingham, inspires us all to get out there and be active. Penguin in the Park is the largest 5K in the Decatur area. This race embraces the Penguin in all of us — a race for the speedy, and those who want to take their time and enjoy the course!

Starting at 9:00am, the 5K race takes place in Fairview Park on a rolling bike path; afterwards, we move to the post-race party inside to Millikin’s Griswold Gym for awards, and warm food.

This year will once again include the 300 meter “Penguin Dash” for the younger penguins that will take place before the start of the 5K at 8:30 am. This is a great opportunity to include youth in a sport and activity that is life long. Make Penguin in the Park a family activity this year. Penguin Dash participants will receive a short sleeve t-shirt and goody bag along with a finisher ribbon.
