    Polar Bear Run

    The Polar Bear Run, the culminating activity in the weeklong Kuviasungnerk festival at the University, had a good turn out of runners this year and the perfect cold, snowy and rainy weather. The traditional run—starting at the doors of Harper Memorial Library and ending at Hull Gate near the Botany Pond—gives students a chance to embrace winter and shed those seasonal blues, and in some cases their clothing. Because a large percentage of runners made the sprint au naturel across the Main Quadrangle this year, the Polar Bear mascot could not watch what the Chronicle could not print. Other events on campus during the annual winter festival included early morning calisthenics at the Henry Crown Field House and the traditional Salute to the Sun at Promontory Point near the lakeshore.
