Join the Polar Bears for a Run at Lake Calhoun this Saturday

Finally! Finally, the weather gets cool enough to actually warrant the name "Polar Bears." Speaking of which, how about some polar bear trivia? Did you know polar bears can run as fast as 40 kilometers per hour—but only for short distances. Younger, leaner bears are the best runners. They can cover two kilometers without stopping. Older, larger bears quickly overheat.

Unlike the real polar bears you're invited to join us to run slightly more than two kilometers; we'll run somewhere between 6 and 12 miles. You don't have to run 40 km per hour either. All paces are invited and you're sure to find someone who'll run with you.

We're meeting Saturday, November 20th, at the Lake Calhoun Executive Center, located at the northeast corner of Lake Calhoun. Start time is 7:30am.

Newbies are always welcome! See you there!
