2017 Special Olympics Polar Plunge

The 13th Annual Special Olympics Polar Plunge, 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk (aka the 5K Run-N-Plunge) will take place in Kure Beach on Saturday, February 11, 2017. This fun, family-friendly event encourages contestants to brave the cold conditions of the Atlantic Ocean by plunging into the shore after completing a 5K (or 1 Mile Walk) that winds through the beach.

Contestants are also encouraged to come to the event dressed as their favorite super hero, with an awards given for the day's Costume Contest. And did we mention this event is dog-friendly? In fact, there will be a special "Pooch Plunge" just for brave Plungers who want their canine companions to participate, too!

Contestants can opt for the 5K Run-N-Plunge, the 1 Mile Fun Walk or just the plunge. No matter what you choose to do, you're sure to have a great time supporting the Special Olympics of New Hanover County!

Take a look at the following schedule for an overview of the day's events:
