2017 Polar Bear Contest - We have a Winner!

Congrats Chuck Bendixen! Miler Polar Bear 2017

At the start of the winter we challenged the Milers to see who could wear shorts the longest into the winter season! The rules were simple.......consistently wear shorts with bare legs & see how long you can hold out! It was a tough battle but little by little the contestants dropped off.

Props to Frank Maneri, John Rosania & Michael Jurick for giving Chuck a run for his money!

The last Polar Bear standing was none other than Chuck Bendixen! He never waivered once & claims that he doesn't own running pants! Even when temps hit single digits with a "feels like" 2 degrees he stayed strong, relentless and persistent. All values of a true Miler!
