Join us as we get the new year started with a splash!
We’re hosting a 5k run, 1 mile dash, and for the grand finale…. a gulf coast polar plunge (splash)! Race one or be bold and brave the cold for all 3 events. As always, you can be assured great SWAG, great party, great fun,
and as always it’s all for a great cause. The run will benefit The Hancock County Canine Operation and the
proceeds form the Polar Plunge will go to Southern Mississippi Aquatic Krewe (SMAK), our local masters swim club.
All pre-registered 5k and 1 mile participants are eligible for long sleeve shirts and finishers medals as well as entry to our catered after party. All plungers receive a unique medal and special “survivor t-shirt” to commemorate the event.

Polar Plunge Rules and Tips:
Plungers must submerge their entire body (yes, including their head, into the water). You can tread out as deep as necessary and lay down or just run out and go under. Your choice. No wetsuits or other protective clothing are allowed, though footwear is recommended. Costumes are a fun way to celebrate and encouraged. We’ll have divers out there keeping an eye on things- Give em’ a high 5 and head back in! We will also have na inflatable waterslide, set up on the beach, providing multiple options for you brave plungers!!
Below are some tips from folks who have plunged in MUCH colder waters:
-Do Not enter this event if you have high blood pressure and/or heart conditions that will put you at risk when you are immersed in cold water. If you have a heart problem…please just come and watch.
-Do Not drink alcohol prior to this event. Alcohol does not warm you up and it accelerates hypothermia.
-Do Not stay in the water longer than 15 minutes. Body heat is lost 25 times faster in water than in air.
-Do Not remove your clothing until swim time.
-Do bring a warm change of clothes, socks, shoes, hat, and blanket for post-plunge warm up
-Have fun and enjoy the craziness of the moment!!
