Penguin in the Park 5K Run/Walk will be celebrating its 11th anniversary on  March 19, 2016! The Penguin will be making his only public appearance at his alma mater, Millikin University, in Decatur, Illinois. This is a race that 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 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, warm food, and inspiration from the Penguin.

New to the event this year is a 300 meter Tot Trot to get youth more involved in a lifelong activity. Tot Trot participants will receive a t-shirt and goody bag as well as a finisher ribbon. Make Penguin in the Park a family event this year.
