The run before the Plunge is back in Duluth! Register today for a 5K race around the Park Point Recreation Area, followed by a full day of Polar Plunge and much more!

If you would like to dash and splash, you must register for both the Frozen 5K ($35 race fee) and the Duluth Plunge ($75 fundraising minimum). If you are planning on participating in both the 5K and Plunge, you must raise at least $110 total.

RACE FEE – $35

Once you are registered for the Duluth Frozen 5K, you can pay your fee in the form of a self-donation onto your account. If you’re interested in earning more incentives, you can fundraise beyond the $35 race fee and receive some of these great items (the Polar Plunge shirt will be replaced by a Frozen 5K shirt).
