Runners and hikers are invited to participate in the Lancaster Group of the Sierra Club’s Eighth Annual Polar Bear 5K (3.1 miles) Trail Run/Hike, beginning at 10 a.m., January 13, 2018, in scenic Lancaster County Central Park. Race day registration and check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. Participants also may bring their dogs (on a leash) to run or walk with them. 

The trail run/hike will wind through the park on well-maintained trails with some hills. Prizes will be awarded to the overall top three male and female runners. The top two runners in each age and gender category will also get prizes, while third-place finishers get a ribbon. Additionally, the first three finishers with dogs (any age group) will receive prizes.

All money raised supports local efforts to end global warming and help subsidize the Group’s green project grant program, which awards grants of up to $500 to Lancaster County organizations.

The Lancaster Group, one of ten groups that make up The Sierra Club PA Chapter, has over 1,480 members and continues to grow annually.

Cost: $25 until December 20; $30 after and until race day. T-shirts are guaranteed for all people who register by Jan. 3. Location: Pavilion 22 (Kiwanis Lodge), Eshleman Mill Rd., Lancaster. For registration forms and more information, email [email protected] or visit
