Polar Plunge 5K & 1 Mile

Kure Beach, NC

Welcome to the Polar Plunge Race registration & fundraising page.

Help support local Special Olympics athletes by participating in the 5K, 1 Mile walk or by taking a chilling plunge into the Atlantic Ocean. Run for a great cause on a certified 5K course open to all ages and skill levels. Race participants will not be required to plunge, but are encouraged to heat up with the run/walk and cool down with the Polar Plunge – because some people are just worth freezing for! Live music, vendors, food trucks and games make this a one-of-a-kind special event not to be missed!
