The Minneapolis Plunge has raised over $15,952,535 in its 17-year history. In 2023, 2,483 Plungers raised $878,990!

Join thousands of brave Plungers for a day of frozen fun! The Minneapolis Plunge has fun for the whole family. Enjoy food trucks, live music, smore’s stations, the Surly Beer Hall and of course, watching the Polar Plunge.

You can also register for the Frozen 5K or Dash & Splash—run an officially-timed 5K race and then take the chilly Plunge into Lake Nokomis! If you are planning to Dash & Splash, 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.
