Flutopia Runs

July 25-August 25, 2020

The Flutopia Run is a unique charity event in which joggers and walkers are serenaded by great area musicians as they make their way around their running/jogging routes. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is going virtual this year with distances to include 1 mile, 5k, 10k and the Flutastic 50 yard dash for kids 10 and under.  Run, walk or do both on your chosen route and on your chosen day and time between July 25-August 25.

Each registrant will be given a playlist that includes our flutabulous rendition of The Flight of the Bumblebee to get you started, followed by Ethnic Drumming, Big Band, Brass, Do Wop, Fiddling, Flute (naturally!) and more to carry you through.


A link to the playlist will be emailed to all registrants between July 20-24. Upon completion of the event, access your event completion form via the link emailed to you and you will receive a souvenir bib and medal with this year's slogan: “My Feet Fly for Flutopia”.

Nittany Valley Half-Marathon

December 6, 2020

First run in 1984, the Nittany Valley Half-Marathon has since blossomed into one of the region’s most popular road races, drawing over 720 runners/walkers in 2018. The 13.1 mile course begins & ends on the Penn State campus, touring through rolling countryside, along scenic Spring Creek and through quaint Houserville. New for 2018 was the option to complete the half-marathon as a walker!

The Nittany Valley Half-Marathon is proud to support Centre Volunteers in Medicine.  The 2020 event will be held on December 6.
