Race Information

Got the winter blues? Looking for a cool way to get over them? How about heading outside for Minneapolis' annual Plunge 5K! This family-friendly walk and run fully embraces the chilly weather.

Take this chance to get off the treadmill and get outside! Runners take to a beautiful course around Lake Calhoun and can warm their hearts (and toes) with the knowledge that the event is supporting more than 8,000 Minnesotan Special Olympics athletes. 

Course Information

The race will be run in conjunction with the Minneapolis Polar Plunge held at Thomas Beach. The USATF certified course is a looped route starting and ending at Thomas Beach at Lake Calhoun.

A mix of hills and flats, the course provides beautiful views of the Lake and Park. A great chance to test your mid-to-late-winter leg speed.
