The Rochester Track Club presents the Polar Bear 5k Prediction Run on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019.
Runners have a staggered start and attempt to finish when the clock hits zero. Following the run, stay for a light luncheon provided by the Rochester Track Club.
This race attempts to equalize all runners by staggering start times according to predicted finish times. You will predict the time you think it will take you to run 3.1 miles to the nearest 30 seconds. The course is a snowy, slippery route that follows the road and bike path. You are responsible for your safe speed and footing. Hey, it is January in Minnesota!!
At 10:00 AM the slowest predicted time runners will start. Every 30 seconds after that, another group will take off according to their respective predicted times. The winner is the first person to cross the finish line. EXCEPTION: anyone faster than his or her predicted time is disqualified! Needless to say, no splits will be given and no watches will be allowed (an automatic DQ).
There will be a 1 hour time limit to complete the race.
