Continue Your New Year's Resolution with a 5K!

Join “the Penguin” John Bingham for his namesake race, the Penguin in the Park 5K Run/Walk on March 26, 2011! The Penguin returns to his alma mater, Millikin University, in Decatur, Illinois for 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 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.

Registration is now open!

You can still register at the early bird rate of $20 until March 19. You can register online or visit our website to download and mail a paper form.
