Looking for a “cool” way to beat the winter blues? Switch off your treadmill and head outside for the third annual Minneapolis 5K! This family-friendly walk/run is a great way to embrace the chilly weather, boost your energy level, and warm your heart by supporting the more than 7,100 athletes of Special Olympics Minnesota. Plus, you’ll receive a rad shirt for your efforts!If you’re looking for a more “extreme” form of exhilaration, consider adding a little “splash” to your “dash”! This means, you will walk/run the 5K and then Plunge into Lake Calhoun. Participants plunging into the frigid waters must raise a minimum of $75. This is completely separate from the 5K fee. Plunging for the Plunge 5K participants begins at 10:30 a.m. Remember, if you want to dash and splash, you must register for the Plunge 5K and the Minneapolis Plunge; two separate events and registrations.
