The first leg of the 17th annual Polar Bear Grand Prix — a three-race, winter series — is kicking off with the Reindeer Romp 4K on Saturday. There are prizes for the men’s and women’s overall winners, winners of each individual race, and winners among 14 different age groups, from 9 and under to 70 and over. Also, new this year is a team challenge, open to groups of three to five men, women or coeds. Unfortunately, COVID-19 closures and government mandates have forced organizers River City Races to take the first 4K virtual. But don’t use this as an excuse to be lazy! It’s not a grand prix if you miss a race… plus you won’t get the race bag of goodies. Both subsequent races, the Frostbite 5K in January and Snowman Shuffle in February, will be held on the Ohio River Greenway in New Albany (with more goodies).
