The winds were calm and the sun was shining for eighty-three runners who ventured out to Front Beach on Saturday, February 23rd for the 2018 Polar Bear 5K Run.

Participants began gathering at 1pm on Front Beach Road, but as time rolled on, more and more athletes rolled in. PCR’s Albert Burnham said it was the nicest weather he had ever seen for the Polar Bear Run, which could have been one of the reasons why there were almost three times the participants compared to last year.
