The Dash is a 3/5K Fun Run through some of San Francisco's most iconic neighborhoods. Registration is priced at $45 per person.
Dive, dip or dunk! The Polar Plunge challenges brave participants to take a chilly splash into the bay. A fundraising minimum of $125 per person is required.
Have a blast! All registered Plungers who raise the minimum $125 are invited to the Pre-Splash Bash featuring complimentary beer and wine, breakfast burritos and other treats to provide some insulation before the icy dive. Plunge festivities will include a DJ, awards, special guests, incentives and more. Water not your thing? Register as a “chicken” and enjoy the festivities while staying dry.
