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. With distances including 1 mile, 5k, and 10k, participants ran or walked on their own chosen routes and on their own chosen day and time between July 25-August 25.

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

Thank you to the Flutopia organizers, musicians and to all the participants in the 2020 event.

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 is cancelled for 2020.
