Online registration is closed. You can still register early Feb. 5-7 from 2 pm to 7 pm at the Ramada, or on race day (until we sell out) starting at 7 am. 

Runners can hit the boardwalk Saturday morning (Feb. 8) for an invigorating 5K! The 5K, presented by the Virginia Law Enforcement Torch Run and Tropical Smoothie, will begin at 8:30 a.m. at 8th Street and the Boardwalk.  All ages welcome (you don't have to plunge to participate).

The registration fee is $40/runner. All runners will receive a long sleeve 5K technical shirt (shirts only are guaranteed to the first 1,000 registered runners), goodie bag, entrance into the Polar Plunge Festival and a ticket to Friday's Pre-Plunge Party (if you pick up your packet early, Feb. 7; one ticket per registrant). Runners also are eligible to earn cool fundraising incentives.
