Race Information: Penguin in the Park 5K Run/Walk will be celebrating its 12th anniversary on March 25, 2017! The Penguin, John Bingham, will be making his only public appearance in 2017 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! 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. 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. Starting at 9:00am, the 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, warm food, and inspiration from the Penguin.
