The run before the Plunge is back in Minneapolis! Register today for a 5K race around Lake Nokomis. All runners receive a long sleeve tech t-shirt.

If you would like to dash and splash, you must register for both the Frozen 5K ($40 race fee) and the Minneapolis Plunge ($75 fundraising minimum). If you are planning on participating in both the 5K and Plunge, you must raise at least $115 total.


Plunge timeslots open approximately three days before the in-person Plunge date. Any teams/individual participants not signed up by noon on the Friday before the Plunge will be automatically assigned a timeslot.
