DENVER - On Feb. 22, Denver's City Park is the place to be, no matter what the weather. It's a Run and a Plunge into an icy pool of water that will be set up by the Pavilion in City Park.

A celebration of winter, the Polar Plunge Splash & Dash will attract runners, beer enthusiasts, music lovers and those Coloradans with the warmest of hearts - Polar Plungers. The 5K run/walk around the park kicks off the event, followed by the Polar Plunge into an icy pool of water. Stick around after for one of Denver's fine craft breweries on site. If running, plunging or drinking works up your appetite, taste free samples of chili at the "Chilly" Cook-off!

Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Colorado and its Project UNIFY program - striving to build acceptance for all people in our community and in our schools. Register online at

Sunshine or snow, the Splash & Dash is sure to break your cabin fever and get you out to enjoy what our beautiful city has to offer, even in the winter!
