2024 Greater Sacramento Polar Plunge & 5K Trail Run

Registration Types


You are prepared to go "all the way" and hit the water running.  You can dip your big toe or your whole body; it's completely up to you. 


Water not your thing?  Register as a chicken and you’ll be excused from taking a quick dip but still enjoy all the Plunge festivities and incentives you can earn. 

Cool School

Open to students and staff administrators in elementary school through high school the opportunity to participate in a fun group activity while supporting the athletes of Special Olympics Northern California.

Remote Plunger

Have a conflict and can’t make the Plunge?  You can still register and raise funds for Special Olympics.  You’re eligible for the same Plunge incentives as all other participants. 

5K Runner

Enjoy a 5K trail run on a scenic route in Brown's Raven. 


5K Runner & Plunger

Warm up with a 5K and then make a 'splash' with a quick dip into the lake. In addition to the $45 registration fee, you must raise an additional $125 in order to participate in the Plunge.
