Frigid 5k Run and Plunge – February 13, 2016 – US Whitewater Center – Charlotte NC
If the hearts and cupids adorning many races on Valentine’s weekend are not for you, perhaps a “frigid” run and plunge is more your style. The event consists of a 5k run followed by a dip in the river at the US Whitewater Center. There will be a bonfire, hot drinks, snacks, and beer waiting for you after the plunge. Crowds of hundreds of runners have participated for the past few years, so get out and join the fun!
