The 36th Annual Polar Bear Run is taking place this weekend around Lake Waramaug, which could lead to some traffic delays in the area. The run on Sunday begins at 11am, with vehicle traffic limited until 1pm. The 7-point-6 mile race begins and ends at the Lake Waramaug Country Club property. More than 300 participants are expected to participate. The event is sponsored by the Lion's Club and Washington EMS, among others. Guiding Eyes for the Blind has been the event's charitable beneficiary since 2018. Since then, organizers say they've donated over $6,400 to the foundation.
