 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Polar Bear Run

The Sierra Club Lancaster Group will conduct the 13th annual Polar Bear 5K trail run/hike fundraiser at 10 a.m., January 15, 2023, in Lancaster County Central Park. All money raised supports regional efforts to end global warming and help finance the group’s popular “green project” grant program, which has awarded grants of up to $500 to 71 Lancaster County organizations over the past seven years, and free outdoor activities and educational programs designed to help people better appreciate, protect and preserve the environment.

The 5K fun run awards unique prizes and colorful ribbons to the overall top three male and female finishers, the first-, second- and third-place winners in different age and gender categories, and the first three finishers (any age group) that race with their dogs. There also will be super door and dog prizes. Race day registration and check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. at park Pavilion 22 (Kiwanis Lodge). Dogs on a leash are welcome to run or walk with their owners.

Location: 1050 Rockford Rd., Lancaster. To register online, visit PolarBear2023. For more information, email [email protected].
