Additional information: Since March, we have been working diligently to host a rescheduled 2020 Penguin in the Park in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, we have continued to monitor conditions and data as we prioritize everyone's health and safety. We have determined that hosting an in-person 2020 Penguin in the Park is not the safest for everyone involved.

All hope is not lost! We have decided to host a Virtual 2020 Penguin in the Park from Saturday, October 10 through Sunday, October 18. Complete with race goodie bags, t shirts, fleece head warmer compliments of Staley Credit Union, finisher medal, results, and more! If you previously registered for the race in March, you are automatically included in this event. Registration is reopened through Wednesday, October 7 to meet the demand of others who would like to join us.
