Description
Chicago Polar Dash is a 1800M, 5K, 10K and Half Marathon running event. Participants can also choose to participate in one of our two challenges! Yeti Challenge (1800M, 5K and 10K) or Mt. Everest Challenge (1800M, 5K and Half Marathon). Polar Dash will be held at Arvey Field, Grant Park on January 6, 2018.

Our incentive program is based on "Bones". One hour earns 1,000 Bones for each hour of work. So working 4 hours at an event would get you 4000 Bones. Bones can be redeemable for Monster Series race entries or great Team Ortho gear. Look out for the opportunities for DOUBLE and TRIPLE Bones shifts!
