Race Preview: 2016 Resolution Run 5K and Polar Bear Dive (Seattle)

Start out 2017 with Club Northwest‘s Resolution 5K and Polar Bear Dive on January 1st in Seattle. You can choose to stay dry and just run the 5K or you can make it interesting and add the Polar Bear Dive (about 100 yards from the 5K finish line) and jump into Lake Washington to ring in the New Year!

This celebratory event includes a free Kids Dash, heated changing tents so you can change into dry clothes after the Polar Bear Dive, and lots of post-race fun. There will be free chili, hot chocolate, coffee, and other food and drink. You can warm up by one of the fire pits and there will also be a beer garden for those 21 and over with beer from the Freemont Brewing Company.
