Race Information

Like a polar bear, a little cold never stopped you from having a great time. So join thousands of your fellow coldweather runners and run the Polar Bear 5K. The race is part of the RunDenver Series and kicks off with open registration and packet pick. A kid's fun run takes place before the 5K. There are awards for the top finishers, so bundle up and run your fastest!

Course Information

The 155 acre Washington Park is the host for the Polar Bear 5K. The park has two lakes and two flower gardens, even a replica of the garden George Washington had a Mount Vernon. Although it is Denver in the winter, so runners should probably prepare for a dusting of snow instead.
