5K site (Lakewalk behind Canal Park Lodge)
All registered Plunge 5K participants will receive a t-shirt!
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!
Event photos will be posted to our Flickr and Facebook pages as we receive them. We are fortunate to have wonderful volunteer photographers for our events, and it typically takes a few weeks until we receive and post photos so please stay tuned.
