The 31st Annual Polar Bear RunSunday, March 1st
The 31st Annual Polar Bear Run (once around the lake) will take place beginning 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 1 (rescheduled due to weather). The race normally attracts several hundred participants, so vehicle use of the lake roads may be limited, particularly during the first hour. The race begins and ends at the Lake Waramaug Country Club property on West Shore Road.
