Like many good things, the Penguin Run started small. Harry Neynens was the original race director of the event, and spent eleven years at the helm of the race. In 2013, Mike & Lexi Juurlink took over the event. The last six years have been a blast, and it has been great to see the run continue to grow over the years.
It is now time to pass the race director reins to the next leader. We are happy to announce that one of our premium race sponsors, Strides Health & Fitness Club, led by Leslie Wilber-Campbell, will take over the Penguin Run for 2019!
We wish Leslie and the crew at Strides all the best – we can’t wait to see what next year brings. One last shout out of thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors and participants over the years… it has been quite the run!
