Splash & Dash (Pool Plunge + 5K)


The Polar Plunge Splash and Dash presented by Westerra Credit Union is a fun and unique way to support Special Olympics Colorado and our amazing athletes.


This year the Plunge will be hosted at the Denver Zoo, while the 5K race/walk will take place at Denver's City Park. Participants have the option to plunge into a pool filled with freezing cold water, run/walk in a 5K...or better yet, do both!

Race and Plunge participants will receive free entry to the Denver Zoo while Plunge Spectators will be asked to pay a discounted admission to enter the Denver Zoo at $9.75 for adults (ages 11+) and $6.75 for children ages 3-11. Children 2 and under will get in free. February 27th is International Polar Bear so please join us and the Denver Zoo in exploring their Polar Bear exhibit!
