The Polar Bear 5-Miler, 5K, and The Bear first took place in the 1980s, running from various locations around Indianapolis. A new course and location at Franciscan City Way began in 2017 and ended in 2019.


The Polar Bear Winter Classic, featuring a 10k, 5k, and The Bear debuted in 2020, and the CRRG chapter of Polar Bear came to a close in 2023. 

Steve, Jesse, and Chris couldn't stand to see such a longstanding Indianapolis running event end, and SJC Racing was born. 

The Team

SJC Racing is proud to bring back the Polar Bear Winter Classic for the 42nd year in 2024.

We hope you enjoy our events!
