State College, PA US 16801
The Resolution Run begins at 6:30 pm.
Runners and walkers are welcome to join us for one of the most popular events of First Night State College, the annual Resolution Run 5k race. This year’s course will take participants onto the University Park campus, but you may find a few new twists and turns. First Night has worked closely with Penn State University to design a new course that will ensure the safety of all runners and walkers. The course will combine both roadways and sidewalks across campus.
Walkers will begin behind runners and will be asked to remain on the sidewalks for the duration of the 5k.
First Night State College encourages runners and spectators to wear costumes. The runner or group of runners with the best costume will receive the adoration of millions or at least a nice round of applause and a story to dine out on for a week or so.
Each of the first 400 registrants will receive one 2024 First Night State College button and some running swag from our sponsor, Mount Nittany Health! Runners High will provide chip timing. The registration fee is $25 if postmarked on or before Dec. 22, 2023. Thereafter, registration is $28. Special incentive for runners ages 19 and under only: $15 for pre-race registration, $18 thereafter (note: FNSC Button not included in this package).
In addition to online, runners can register in person on December 30, 2-4pm at the State College Municipal Bldg. (243 S. Allen St.) as well as on December 31, race day, from 4-6pm at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church basketball court which will also serve as baggage storage during the race.
