Flutopia Runs

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 was conducted virtually in 2020 and will again be held virtually in 2021.  With distances including 1 mile, 5k, and 10k, participants can run on their own chosen routes and on their own chosen day and time between July 31 and August 31.

Each registrant will be given a playlist including the flutabulous rendition of Flight of the Bumblebee to get them started followed by Jazz, New Age, Irish, Classical, and Latin American tunes provided by our Flutopia Musicians. All participants will receive a souvenir "My Feet Fly for Flutopia" race bib and your medal.

You may register until July 30th.

Nittany Valley Half-Marathon

First run in 1984, the Nittany Valley Half-Marathon has since blossomed into one of the region’s most popular road races. The 13.1 mile course begins & ends on the Penn State campus, touring through rolling countryside, along scenic Spring Creek and through quaint Houserville. There is also an option to complete this route as a walker!

The Nittany Valley Half-Marathon was cancelled in 2020.  Check back to look for a future date for this event.
