Polar Cats Winter 5K Series- Race #3- Mendon Ponds

When: February 11, 2024
Where: Rochester, NY

Don't let the cold weather stop you, come run in the return of the Polar Cats Winter Race Series!

This year we have a series of 5k road races at various locations around Rochester. Originally created by Bill Kehoe in the '90s and discontinued years ago, we felt it was time for a comeback.  This series is designed to be low cost and keep you active over the winter months. You can sign up for each race individually or all three as a series! Runners who enter the entire series will also receive a pair of Polar Cats sweatpants.

Packet pickup will be:
The day before the race) @ Rochester Running Company from 11AM – 4PM
Race Day @ Race location 1 hour prior to race


There will be winners of each race as well as series winners for those who signed up for all 4! Prizes will be awarded to top three male and female runners as well as age group winners for each race and the series as a whole.



Traditionally, these races were held on weeks opposite of the Freezeroo Series so runners could compete in both and we kept that this year.



There will be 4 5k races in this series, the dates are:

12/8/23- Leroy- Jinglin All the Way Festive 5k run or walk 

1/7/24: Seneca Park – Wegman Building

2/8/24: Mendon Ponds

3//20: Gates, NY
