2020 Polar Bear Prediction 5K
January 4, 2020
How Polar Bear Prediction Run works:
At 10am, the clock and finish line stop watch will start counting down from 60 minutes. You decide when to start (cross the start line). Your goal is to leave, and keep running/walking, to be one of the 1st ten to cross the finish when the clock is at zero.

The clock is not visible at the finish, and runners are not allowed to wear or use a watch.

Join RTC for a fun prediction-style race, where anyone can be a winner, everyone gets lunch, and many get door prizes. Stay for lunch and the award ceremony to learn which ten runners were 1st to cross the finish line after the clock counted down to zero. They win a coveted Roger Heil hand carved bear.

This is a great time to join RTC or reactivate a lapsed membership! Members receive $5 registration discount on Polar Bear. RTC's 2020 membership dues are $20/year for individual or $25/year for family. Links provided below.

Gloria Dei Lutheran Church

1212 NW 12th Avenue, Rochester

Doors open at 9:30am

Clock count down starts at 10am

The light lunch is served around 11:15am, followed by awards & door prizes.

The 5K course is an out & back on streets and bike trail (snowy & may be slippery).

The finish line gate is single file.

When you finish, come in to Gloria Dei to warm up, get some lunch and hear whether you were lucky enough to score a bear!

Crossed the finish line one tiny second too soon? Drat! that was a disqualification.

11th runner? So close and sad.
