The Frozen 5K is an officially timed 5K race around Lake Nokomis to kick off a day of Polar Plunging! All participants receive a medal and a long-sleeved 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.

Once you are registered for the Minneapolis 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 $40 race fee and receive some of these great items (the Polar Plunge shirt will be replaced by a Frozen 5K shirt).

Volunteer at the Minneapolis Plunge
