5K Details

5K begins at the Plunge site (look for the tents!). This event is a fun run and will not be timed. The course starts at the Plunge site, heads east on the lakewalk, turns around near 21st Avenue E, and heads back west to the finish line.

Dash and Splash

If you’re looking for a more extreme form of exhilaration, consider adding a little “splash” to your “dash!” Sign up for the Plunge as well and take a dip into Lake Superior that same afternoon!
