We start off with an untimed Tot Trot, watching our young athletes having a blast. Second, we go into our main event - 5k beach run. Earn your Pier to Plunge beanie by taking the Polar Plunge once you cross the finishline.  (to earn a beanie you must be a registered runner/walker and have your bib on)  Costumes are encouraged! PETE THE POLAR BEAR WILL BE LEADING THE PACK.  We have amazing prizes for the best costume! 

1st place prize for both male and female will receive the prize of an ULTIMATE DAY OF A PROFESSIONAL RUNNER: a training session with nutritional consultation from JORDAN HASAY (learn all you can from her). Plus bodywork with Jordan's bodyworker, award winning Massage Therapist, Michael Moore, CMT.
