Polar Bear Skate 2019 at The Bentway

Taking a Polar Bear Dip? That's so next year. One of your last chances to be super adventurous in 2019 is the second annual Polar Bear Skate under the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto.

Registration starts at 1pm then the skate happens at 2pm on Sunday, December 29. The skating path under the expressway is adjacent to historic Fort York at 250 Fort York Boulevard. The Bentway has been home to some great events this year and has become a must visit for Torontonians.

It's cold and raining in Toronto but under the Gardiner it is dry and yes, still cold. But if you are brave enough to strip down to your underwear or a bathing suit you are all set to go. Besides you have sat around partying too much during the holiday season, probably in your pajamas and it's time to strap on your skates and get some exercise.

The bentway website says; "This event is free to attend – just bring your skates and you’re good to go. If you don’t have skates, we have rentals available on-site.  All participants must sign a waiver before taking part in the Polar Bear Skate. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian. The first 100 pre-registrants (via Eventbrite) will receive a free hot chocolate."

After a skate you can warm up at the Quaker Oats trailer and feast on warm oatmeal and other free snacks
