Description

_ The 2021 Penguin in the Park 5K:
 

Penguin in the Park 5K Run/Walk will be back and in person on October 10, 2021! After his namesake, the Penguin, John Bingham, inspires us all to get out there and be active. Penguin in the Park is the largest (and friendliest) 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 3:00 pm, the 5K race takes place in Fairview Park on a rolling bike path; afterwards, we will have a post-race party with awards, food, prizes, and entertainment in Fairview Pavilion.

This year will once again include the 300 meter Penguin Jr. Dash for the younger penguins that will take place before the start of the 5K at 2:30 pm. 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.

The race committee is committed to hosting the race in accordance with all CDC, state, and local health guidance. Prior to race day, detailed instructions will be sent regarding guidelines for participating in the race safely, which may include certain restrictions.  This might include starting participants in small groups.  We will make this determination when the race gets closer based upon the current health guidelines at that time.
