We’ll be trading in skates for sneakers, when the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins host the second annual Penguins 5K, presented by PNC. 

The race, which benefits the Penguins GOALS Foundation, takes place at 9:00am on Saturday, August 20 at the Back Mountain Trail in Luzerne.

Racers can take part in the competitive run, featuring prizes for the top overall male and female participants, while those simply looking to come out and enjoy the morning can pull on their walking shoes and ‘waddle’ along.

All participants will receive a Penguins 5K t-shirt, a commemorative finisher puck, and a free voucher to a Penguins home game during the 2022-23 season.

Cost of the run/walk is just $35, and all proceeds will benefit the Penguins GOALS Foundation, which dedicates time, resources, and financial support to organizations committed to bettering the lives of the people of northeast Pennsylvania.
