5K Resolution Run

Sponsored by
Mount Nittany Hospital

Dec. 31, 6:30p.m.; corner of College Ave. and Allen St.
Co-presented with Nittany Valley Running Club

Runners, fast, and not so fast walkers can speed into the New Year on a certified, mostly flat, wheel-measured course around the streets of Penn State Campus, starting and finishing on College Avenue.

First Night State College encourages runners and spectators to wear costumes. A plaque will be awarded to the best and most original costume worn by a runner.

The event will be chip timed with chips provided by Runners High. First, second, and third overall men and women and first and second places in the masters division (40+) will earn plaques. The top three men and women in age groups: 5-19 in 3-yr splits, and 20-89 in 5-year splits will receive framed certificates.

One 2014 First Night®State College button and a long-sleeved tee shirt will go to each of the first 850 registrants.

Registration fee is $25 if postmarked on or before Dec. 24, 2013. Thereafter registration is $28. As a special incentive for runners ages nineteen and under only: $15 for pre-race registration, $18 thereafter. (Note: FNSC Button not included in this package)

Runners can register at the office of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts until noon, on
December 30, and or may register or pick up race packets on Monday, Dec. 30th from 3 to 7 p.m. at the State College Municipal Building Lobby, 243 South Allen Street, State College, or on race day between 4 and 6 p.m. at the St. Paul’s United Methodist Church basketball court.
