NRCM Polar Bear Dip & Dash

NRCM's 11th Annual 

The 5k registration will open at 9:00 a.m. at the Back Cove Parking lot. The race will start at 11 a.m. The dip will be at noon at East End Beach, Portland. A shuttle will return participants to the Back Cove parking lot after the dip. If you are dipping only, head straight to East End Beach where registration will open at 11 AM. 

The non-refundable, early "bear" registration fee to dip, dash, or both is $30 until November 15 and then increases to $35. Additionally, friends and family can pledge you through our secure webpages. See prizes for hitting fundraising levels below.

A 5k and polar bear dip in winter in Maine to raise funds to combat global warming is fitting. Weather patterns are changing from one extreme to the next and our seas are rising. The effects of climate change on Maine’s environment are severe.

Energy efficiency, clean air, and renewable energy sources are a priority for NRCM. Every cent you raise will be used to directly support this work to reduce global warming emissions.
