Frigid 5K & Penguin Plunge

January 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

We want to invite you and your friends and family to the 2023 Frigid 5k and Penguin Plunge! It’s a great way to start out the year and break free from the winter running blues!

The Frigid 5k and Penguin Plunge have been the premier winter event for over a decade. The starting line for the 5k is at the Provo Boat Harbor where you will enjoy the short, yet challenging course. After the 5k, finish the event off with the Penguin Plunge.

Challenge yourself and brave the frigid cold by jumping into the Utah State Lake. Our team skillfully cuts out a square of ice and inserts a safety cage to keep plungers safe. If you choose to opt-out of taking a dip in the lake, feel free to watch the faces of those who are crazy enough to take the dive!

At Runtastic Events, we value the safety of our race participants and strive to create a fun and safe environment. Both the 5k and Penguin Plunge have first aid booths readily available for participants.
