Race Start Times:
Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach is excited to host the Penguin Dash 5K Run/Walk and Ripley’s Penguin Family Fun 1 mile walk/run! This family-friendly, themed event will be a celebration of the South African Penguins. Guests are encouraged to dress up for the costume contest and all ages are welcome. There is even a free Toddler Waddle taking place in front of Ripley’s Aquarium that morning at 9am. This event will start and end in front of Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach and the route takes the runners through the Broadway at the Beach shopping and dining complex. Norman and Sharkee will be there and we may get a special visit from the penguins themselves! Read more about these beautiful creatures here: https://sanccob.co.za/
With your help, we donated $1,100.00 to SANCOBB in 2023!
A portion of race proceeds will be donated toward Penguin Conservation efforts through SANCOBB- The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds. https://sanccob.co.za/ In addition, each participant has the opportunity to make subsequent donations during registration. These donations go directly toward the penguin conservation.
