Race Preview: 2015 Newport Resolution Run and Polar Plunge

The 2015 Newport Resolution Run & Polar Bear Plunge is taking place on January 3 at the Rogue Brewery in Newport. Given the frigid weather we have had lately, you may need these next 3 weeks to muster up enough courage to willingly head out into the ocean!

The event will have both a 5k and a Polar Plunge. Runners are welcome to run one or both, and each will be timed seperately so you needn’t worry if you are going to attempt a 5k PR but still want to experience the cold.

This year, Rogue Brewery is giving Chili and Clam Chowder to all runners. Additionally, all plungers will get a free beer as well. The Beer Mile is still up in the air, so make sure you like the race Facebook page to stay up to date on any changes.
