Lake Waramaug Polar Bear Run

Join us February 25th for an epic 7.8 mile loop of picturesque Lake Waramaug - this annual winter tradition attracts hundreds of area runners. The Run starts at 11 am. Powered by a team of more than 50 volunteers, we're committed to delivering a fantastic experience for all participants and to raising both awareness and money for Guiding Eyes for the Blind. We've donated over $24,000 to date and we're running towards our next milestone of surpassing $40,000 in total donations. The scenic course travels counterclockwise along the shoreline of the glacial lake while passing through Washington, Warren and Kent. The route is primarily flat with a few gentle rolling hills. The final .2 miles provides a true test for all as runners ascend the unforgiving Hopkins Hill to the finish line at Hopkins Vineyard. The top three male and female finishers receive prizes. First place overall wins a $100 TrailHeads gift card and a bottle of wine from Hopkins Vineyard. Age Group Awards are presented for the top 3 in each category: 18 & under / 19-29 / 30-39 / 40-49 / 50-59 / 60-69 / 70 & over *** Be Sure to Sign Up Early - The Race is limited to 700 participants ***
