COURSE MAPS (2017 information coming soon)
START AND FINISH
Thanks to our new Presenting Sponsor, Franciscan at CityWay, the 2016 Polar Bear will have a new course and POST PARTY! The ultra-fast course will take you to Fountain Square, then west to Meridian and back to CityWay. The 5 miler will take you north on Delaware to New York to East and back to the finish in front of CityWay.
5K starts at 8:30 AM | 5M starts at 9:15 AM. Both events use the same start line.
The top 3 male and female finishers in each age group: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+
All events have a cash purse and age group awards BUT you will only receive an award in the race that you registered for.
Run the 5 Mile and the 5K
The top three male and female finishers will receive awards.
Note: If you are running The Bear, you can only accept one award. (i.e. you cannot win your age group in the 5K AND win your age group in the Bear. If you choose The Bear, then the second place finisher in the 5K age group would win.)
CASH PURSE (2017 information coming soon)
Purse will ONLY be paid based on the event you registered for. If you register forThe Bear, you win The Bear money only even if you win the 5 mile or 5K. Payout will be as follows:
|PURSE||5 MILE||5K||The Bear|
