The Details

  • Choose to run the 5K only, or amp it up with the unbelievable experience of running the 5K then taking the Polar Plunge!
  • $30 for the run only or $100 for the best of both worlds.
  • Just like the Polar Plunge, raise donations to cover your registration fee and earn rock-star prizes for raising additional donations. You rock star you.
  • Even if you are just running the 5K, runners are encouraged to register as part of a Polar Plunge team. The team can be through work, school or just your besties. You are all supporting Special Olympics in your own way it’s more fun as part of a team.
